Park across from REDCAT a block away for less and avoid the parking lot traffic on the way out.

There is only one reason to see a production of this 2nd rate opera- Wagnerian super-soprano Anja Kampe. While well played and otherise well cast, this opera sounds like a 2nd rate film score.

Beautiful production. Imaginative set design. The conductor gives lecture about an hour prior to the performance that really provide great insights to the piece. Check venue for actual time.

Great voices, great orchestra, gorgeous music. Real, big-time opera, the kind that reminds me why we put up with living in the city.

Quotes & Highlights

“…vacillates between melodies of Mediterranean grace and textures of otherworldly complexity…One scene melts into another with cinematic ease.” —The New Yorker
“affecting and sympathetic” —The New York Times (on Robert Brubaker in the role of Alviano in the Salzburg Festival performance of Die Gezeichneten)

Description

An unlikely love triangle plays out amidst a group of decadent nobles, who are marked by lust, branded by depravity and stigmatized for their own unspeakable acts. The mystery of the paradise garden island, with its secret love grotto, climaxes in a shocking revelation.   This voluptuously evocative work springs to vivid life under the baton of James Conlon and stage direction of the internationally celebrated Ian Judge. Anja Kampe, (Fidelio, Il Tabarro and Die Walküre) takes the part of the work’s main love interest, Carlotta. Robert Brubaker makes his LA Opera debut as the tortured Alviano. Returning LA Opera favorites are James Johnson (The Dwarf and The Birds), and Martin Gantner (Tannhäuser).
