Called "a force of nature" by the Sunday Telegraph (UK), the inimitable bass-baritone Bryn Terfel will make his first staged appearance with Los Angeles Opera in his signature portrayal of Sir John Falstaff in Verdi's final masterpiece, FALSTAFF. The opera will run during May & June at the Music Center, in repertory with Richard Strauss' beloved romantic comedy DER ROSENKAVALIER.
production will be directed by Academy Award-winner Maximilian Schell,
who made his local debut in 2001 with Lohengrin. Teamed up with him is
production designer Gottfried Helnwein, who is an internationally recognized
painter, draftsman, photographer, muralist, sculptor and performance artist.
More information about him can be found on his website, helnwein.com
Joining Terfel in FALSTAFF are soprano Kallen Esperian, mezzo Jane Henschel, tenor Daniil Shtoda and soprano Celena Shafer.
Kent Nagano conducts both operas.
