Soldier Songs combines elements of theater, opera, rock-infused concert music, and film footage by Bill Morrison in a monodrama for baritone (David Adam Moore) and chamber orchestra. The multi-media concert presentation explores the perceptions versus the realities of a soldier, the exploration of loss and exploitation of innocence, and the difficulty of expressing the truth of war.
The libretto, created by composer David T. Little, was adapted from recorded interviews with veterans of five wars. It is a chilling and realistic view of our media-crazed, war machine culture, and of the nature of power in war.
Soldier Songs asks the tough questions and tells the tough stories through its poignant libretto, driving music, and surprising visual counterpoint.
A co-presentation with the Ford Theaters of Beth Morrison Projects' production.
A mesmerizing Philip Glass masterpiece, staged by the visionary director of AkhnatenFollowing the extraordinary success of Einstein on the Beach and Akhnaten, LA Opera completes the Philip Glass trilogy of operas about men who changed the world. Satyagraha (Sanskrit for “truth force”) is inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s early years in South Africa, where he developed a radical new idea of nonviolent political resistance. A visually stunning presentation links past, present and future to illuminate a powerful meditation on the lasting effects of human goodness.
"An unmissable music theatre experience." – The Guardian
Another spooky marriage of opera and film for Halloween at the Ace!
Menace lurks behind every shadow in a remote village filled with secrets. Our annual Halloween mash-up of opera and cinema returns to the spectacular Theatre at Ace Hotel with filmmaker Carl Theodor Dreyer’s surreal 1932 masterwork, one of the most unsettling vampire movies ever made. Composer Joby Talbot creates a compelling new score for chamber orchestra and singers, performed live with a rare screening of this cinematic gem, underestimated for decades but now regarded as an important landmark of the horror genre.
