Rod Gilfry is an LA Opera legend, but did you know his role as The Father in Eurydice was his 32nd at the company?

Well, get excited because Rod is put together an unforgettable (get it?) Living Room Recital that you can watch below. 

#LAOAtHOME concerts continue LIVE, featuring Rod Gilfry, 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!
