The Colburn School presents: Opera at Colburn
James Conlon, hailed as a “miracle of equilibrium,” returns to Zipper Hall on April 4, 5 and 6 to conduct members of the Colburn Orchestra and vocalists from LA Opera’s Domingo-Thornton Young Artist Program in a staged production of Benjamin Britten's The Rape of Lucretia.
Maestro Conlon, a longtime admirer of Britten’s artistic genius, will guide guests through an invigorating evening celebrating the legendary British composer as part of Britten 100/LA.
Included in the full program will be a semi-staged Art Song Prelude, comprised of works by Britten and his contemporaries, as well as an informative pre-concert lecture by Conlon.
