The West Coast premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang's compelling new work.
Two piano prodigies at a master class encounter an even greater talent: the virtuoso Glenn Gould, on the cusp of superstardom. The devastating realization that they will never approach their new rival’s level of artistry changes their lives forever. A painful meditation on dreams forsaken and hopes unrealized unfolds in an unusually intimate staging that incorporates multiple levels of the spectacular Theatre at Ace Hotel. Composer David Lang returns to LA Opera for the first time since his spellbinding anatomy theater, with baritone Rod Gilfry in a tour-de-force performance of a role he created at the work’s premiere at the pathbreaking Bang on a Can festival.
"Boldly unconventional… engrossingly ambiguous. Mr. Lang captures the conflicted emotional currents of the story in his elusive, austere music." – The New York Times
Company premiere! A new production of Mozart’s rarely performed final masterpiece.
The most powerful civilization in the world falls vulnerable to the machinations of power players seeking glory. In a drama marked by shifting layers of morality and loyalty, Mozart’s unmistakable love for humanity shines through in his glorious and endlessly inventive music. Russell Thomas stars as the imperiled leader whose generosity and compassion point the way to a brighter future.
"James Conlon… never fails to provide a sublime reading of Mozart." – Variety
