Maurice Hines' song-and-dance tribute to his late brother Gregory reunites him with the talented Manzari Brothers, his co-stars in the smash Sophisticated Ladies, along with 10-year-old phenom Luke Spring, who at 7 years old was wowing TV audiences on the Ellen show. Hines, who started out with his brother and father in a '50s act called "Hines, Hines & Dad," soon went on to star on Broadway in shows like Eubie!, Bring Back Birdie, Uptown ... It's Hot and his own production, Hot Feet. This joyful tap-filled trip back through the Hines brothers' amazing lives and careers also recognizes inspirations like Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat "King" Cole and more.

The music of this opera is quite dissonant a la Schoenberg. It took time to get used to it. The story is intense and rather dark as far as human behavior is concerned. But I I found it intriguing. The sets and lighting are spectacular. And the acting and singing of the leads Anja Kampe and Robert Brubaker were strong and delightful. Paula Correia
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)
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).
