A county-wide festival of performances, conversations and happenings.
Inspired by LA Opera’s world premiere of Eurydice, a new opera created by composer Matthew Aucoin and librettist Sarah Ruhl, artists and scholars across the county will come together in 2020 to share their stories and their art. Through a festival of performances, conversations and happenings, they will investigate the ancient myths and upend them, leading us into daring new understandings of what it means to love, to lose, to forget and to remember. Much of the festival will focus on the female perspective and experience, the wife/daughter/ mother who has too frequently been left behind or ignored in our stories. This time, we let Eurydice speak for herself. LA Opera is deeply grateful to the community of brilliant artists, scholars and community partners who have joined together for Eurydice Found. Through their talent and generosity, they connect us to our history, to the world around us, to each other, to our shared humanity. Thanks to them, we all can look back, forward, and at each other.
We invite you to join us on the journey.
