Community Opera

CALLING ALL COMMUNITY PERFORMERS!

LA Opera is seeking volunteer DANCERS, ACTORS and SINGERS
to perform in the world premiere of Moses (ages 9 and up).

LA Opera and the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels are working together to produce a world premiere, community opera production of Moses, written by Henry Mollicone and Shishir Kurup, and conducted by James Conlon, LA Opera’s Richard Seaver Music Director. The production will feature a cast and chorus of nearly 400 from Los Angeles-area community groups performing alongside LA Opera singers and orchestra members.
