L.A. Opera opened its new season with a rousing, traditional version of Verdi's Don Carlo that was highlighted by the vocal star power of tenor Ramón Vargas, the always entrancing Ana María Martínez and the company's legendary leader, Plácido Domingo. But L.A. Opera's new production of Philip Glass' Satyagraha, a modernist, operatic look at Mahatma Gandhi's sojourn in South Africa, promises to be anything but traditional in director Phelim McDermott's staging, which features gigantic, stilt-walking creatures and Kevin Pollard's inventive costumes. While McDermott's fanciful production of another Glass opera, Akhnaten, for L.A. Opera was sometimes overly busy and cute, it was nonetheless a similar three-ring circus of merry distractions and dramatic visual flair.
