You've seen Frederick Ballentine on our main and Off Grand Stages, and he'll be returning next season as Dr. Richardson in our groundbreaking premiere of Breaking the Waves. But first, he makes his LAO at Home debut with a special program in celebration of Pride month.

#LAOAtHOME concerts continue LIVE, featuring Frederick Ballentine, as he brings your (and his) favorite songs from his living room to yours. LA Opera is both reliant on and grateful for your support to ensure the future of world-class opera to Los Angeles. Thanks for joining us!
