Los Angeles Master Chorale Performs Lagrime Di San Pietro/Tears Of St. Peter by Orlando di Lasso and directed by Peter Sellars

The Los Angeles Master Chorale (LAMC) gives two performances of Lagrime Di San Pietro/Tears Of St. Peter by Orlando di Lasso, directed by Peter Sellars and conducted by LAMC Associate Conductor Jenny Wong, onSaturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21, 2018, 7:30 pm, in the Bram Goldsmith Theater at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. The production marks the first acapella staging and most personal and emotionally-charged work to date from the acclaimed director’s creative mind. Twenty-one singers transform this 75-minute Renaissance masterpiece – committed to memory and dramatically staged – into both a biblical parable of St. Peter’s disavowal of Jesus Christ and a contemporary allegory for our fractious times. “A major accomplishment for the Master Chorale… and a major accomplishment for music history.” - Los Angeles Times. Tickets: $45 - $95
