Free tickets now available for LA Opera's world premiere of Moses


Performances on March 22 and 23 to feature nearly 500 community performers of all ages paired with professional artists

WHAT:
LA Opera will collaborate with nearly 500 local community performers and the company's professional artists, to present Moses, a world premiere by composer Henry Mollicone and librettist Shishir Kurup. The two performances will be held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels and directed by Eli Villanueva. The world-renowned James Conlon will conduct.

Every spring since 2007, LA Opera has opened its stage doors to all aspiring performers in the Los Angeles community—including singers, dancers and musicians—to perform along with professionals in those fields in a fully-staged opera. The Cathedral at Our Lady of the Angels has generously donated their facility for the program's use since its inception. Participation isn't limited to the hundreds of performers on the stage; the entire audience is also encouraged to join in the fun by singing along. While the theme of the opera is drawn from the Old Testament, people of all beliefs and backgrounds are encouraged to participate and attend.

WHEN:
Two performances: Friday, March 22, and Saturday, March 23, both at 7:30pm.

WHERE:
The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels
555 West Temple Street
Los Angeles CA 90012

TICKETS:
Admission is free, but advance tickets are required. Tickets are only available online at LAOpera.org/Moses. There is a $1 handling fee per order and a four-ticket limit per household, subject to availability.
