LA Opera Resurrects Bach's Classic Masterpiece, St. Matthew Passion
Gaetano Donizetti's gorgeously moody score masterfully conveys Lucia's isolation and instability as she slips into a terrifying world of madness. Two extraordinary sopranos — who launched their careers at LA Opera — will take on the iconic title role: Amanda Woodbury, who's now a star at the Metropolitan Opera, and Liv Redpath, who'll sing Lucia at the Deutsche Opera Berlin this year. Tenor Arturo Chacón-Cruz returns as Lucia's beloved Edgardo, with Alexander Birch Elliott as Enrico and bass Eric Owens as Raimondo.
Lina González-Granados leads the proceedings in her first outing as the company's new Resident Conductor. Director Simon Stone creates a powerful new production that moves the story to a present-day world of desperation and decline.
GRoW is honored to support this thrilling tale being staged in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.
