Stream crossings can be difficult on a hike. Let’s go pay homage to the master of water crossings: Moses!
This is an LA Opera community opera production. Here’s the official description of what we’ll see. (from https://www.laopera.org/community/families/community-opera/)
Every year, LA Opera invites all passionate and aspiring performers to join us onstage in our Community Opera. In eight weeks of rehearsal, (nights and weekends) nearly 500 people come together and perform with LA Opera singers and orchestra members. And it all happens at the exquisite Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Downtown LA.
On Friday, March 22 and Saturday March 23, we bring you the world premiere of Moses, written by Henry Mollicone and Shishir Kurup, conducted by James Conlon, LA Opera’s Richard Seaver Music Director. The classic biblical story of Moses has it all: a quest for faith, brotherly feuds, true love, and of course, the parting of the Red Sea. Come witness an extraordinary collaboration; diverse communities coming together to give the gift of opera to Los Angeles through our Community Opera. And you can see it all for free.
I have seen one of their community opera’s before and it was great. The cathedral is also pretty amazing. You will need a ticket, which will cost all of $1, available at: https://www.laopera.org/community/families/community-opera/
We’ll also be looking at a pre-opera event in the area including dinner and visit to Grand Park and the Disney Concert hall. That will be posted separately as I work out the details.
Transportation: You can drive and park in the area OR take the Metro Red Line from the North Hollywood station and get off at the Civic Center/Grand Park stop.
Parking: There is a lot of parking available in the area. My favorite spot is at the Disney Concert Hall which costs about $9. Other parking places abound.
