L.A. OPERAS 2015/2016 SEASON
Placido Domingo, General Director of L.A. Opera, recently announced the companys 2015/2016 season (its thirtieth, by the way). The September/October opener is a double bill, with Domingo himself starring in Woody Allens riotous staging of Puccinis comic masterpiece GIANNA SCHICCHI (first seen locally in 2008). Domingo will then conduct the Francesco Zeffirelli production of Leoncavallos PAGLIACCI, starring Marco Berti and Ana Maria Martinez.
Jake Heggies monumental modern opera MOBY-DICK will follow (Oct. 31-Nov. 28), with James Conlon conducting a cast which includes Jay Hunter Morris as Captain Ahab and Joshua Guerrero as Ishmael. MOBY-DICK has been a runaway success, both artistically and commercially, in Dallas, San Francisco, San Diego and Calgary.
Among the other highlights of the new season are NORMA, THE MAGIC FLUTE, MADAME BUTTERFLY and LA BOHEME, the latter with conductor Gustavo Dudamel making his eagerly anticipated LA Opera debut.
