Behind the Curtain: Matthew Aucoin on "Crossing"
LA Opera: May 22, 2018
Matthew Aucoin (LA Opera's Artist In Residence) discusses his own composition, “Crossing”, with Classical KUSC's Brian Lauritzen. Inspired by poet Walt Whitman’s experiences tending to wounded soldiers during the Civil War, “Crossing” explores the connections that come between us and pull us apart. Performances of this LA Opera Off Grand production take place at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, May 25 and Saturday, May 26, both at 8:00pm.
