Our 2021/22 season is officially over, and we have to say, it just might have been our most memorable yet. From a heroic set build from scratch in just 10 days to a sumptuous staging of one of the most beloved works this art form has to offer, there are a lot of high notes to celebrate.
We’ve rounded up some of the best (and literal) photographic memories of this season and invite you to relive all of this operatic magic with us.
BUILDING THE SET OF IL TROVATORE
When we say the show must go on, we mean it. Our incredible crew ensured our triumphant return to the stage would happen on schedule after our original set of Il Trovatore got stuck in the Port of Los Angeles. They built a new set from scratch in just 10 days.
RETURNING TO THE STAGE
A MUSICAL FEAST
BACK TO THE ACE
HAVING A BALL... at the ball
A PASSION FOR PASSION
AN EYE-OPENING PREMIERE
A SUMPTUOUS END TO THE SEASON
On the Virtual Stage
A SWEET SENDOFF FOR OLD FRIENDS
The end of this season also meant saying goodbye to some beloved members of the LA Opera family. Choristers George Sterne and Mark Miller, Stage Manager Barbara Donner and our Resident Conductor Grant Gershon are all retiring or shifting focus to other endeavors after spending decades on (or back) stage. While we’re sad to see them go, we wish them all the best on their new and exciting journeys.
