About This Performance
Experimental opera producer/director Yuval Sharon, the LA Phil’s new Artist-Collaborator, directs Lou Harrison’s sublime and sinuous, percussion-rich depiction of Caesar’s love for another man. After its scandalous 1971 premiere at Caltech, this new performance edition fuses Harrison’s original gamelan-inspired orchestration with his later, lush orchestral writing.
This performance is presented in collaboration with The Industry.
Performance edition co-commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and The Industry in cooperation with Harrison House Music, Arts & Ecology.
