The Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA hosts “two creative visionaries” discussing their contributions to contemporary music. Famed opera and theater director (and UCLA professor) Peter Sellars has been staging classical and contemporary works for more than 30 years, including productions of Don Giovanni, Giulio Cesare and Nixon in China. (Last year, he staged Johns Adams’ The Gospel According to the Other Mary for the Los Angeles Philharmonic). Sellars will join Robert Hurwitz, the L.A.-raised head of classical/world music label of Nonesuch Records, which is currently home to Adams, Philip Glass, Stephen Sondheim, Kronos Quartet, Bjork, The Black Keys and many other artists.
Sun., Dec. 7, 7-8 p.m., 2014
