Los Angeles Opera will mount Carla Lucero’s THE THREE WOMEN OF JERUSALEM at the Cathedral of our Lady of the Angels on March 19. The world premiere will mark several firsts: it’s the first opera by a female composer (she is also the librettist) and the first Spanish-language opera to be commissioned for the Cathedral.

The 2022 community opera production, with James Conlon directing, will feature hundreds of amateur singers, dancers and instrumentalists of all ages, along with LA Opera’s professional soloists and musicians. Singers from around the world will also sing along (virtually) with the congregational hymns. These global performances will be shown inside the Cathedral, bringing everyone together.

The opera depicts the moment when Jesus pauses to comfort weeping women along the way to the crucifixion (the eighth station of the Cross). Ultimately it’s all about hope and compassion, and it’s suitable for audiences of any faith: its themes of compassion and community are universal.

Carla Lucero had this to say about her opera: “I hope the audience will identify with the tests of faith and conscience that the three women in the opera face in the end, following our conscience is having faith in the goodness within us and acting accordingly...Through empathy comes tangible goodness and change for the better, if we put away our fears. The Passion can be uplifting and motivating. I really hope this comes through in THE THREE WOMEN.”
