“Music after Wagner was never the same. Wagner's operas pushed music to its physical and emotional limits … paving the way not just for composers like Mahler and Richard Strauss, but for everything from Star Wars to Metallica.”––Gustavo Dudamel
To conclude the LA Phil’s season-long celebration of innovative architect and longtime collaborator Frank Gehry, visionary conductor Gustavo Dudamel will helm a fully staged production of part one of Wagner’s Ring Cycle for the first time. Featuring epic naturalism, endless melodies, and gripping harmonies, the mythical world of Das Rheingold springs forth from Walt Disney Concert Hall with scenic design by Gehry, the iconic venue’s designer; direction by Alberto Arvelo; and costumes by Cindy Figueroa. The GRAMMY Award–winning Ryan Speedo Green lends his voice to Wotan, headlining an internationally renowned cast in this landmark production of Wagner’s epic tale featuring gods, gold, and grandiose music.
Founded in 1919, the LA Phil presents and promotes the performing arts in its varied forms at the highest level of excellence to a diverse and large audience at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, and The Ford.
This Experience L.A. event for USC students will include a pre-performance lecture.
Presented by USC Visions and Voices.
