Atlas

June 11, 2019 - June 14, 2019

Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 8 p.m

Yuval Sharon has been the wizard behind the curtain for some astonishing visual productions with L.A. Phil, including launching the Nimbus installation of colorful, cottony clouds above Disney Hall’s escalators; marshaling an invasion of gigantic, tripod-like Martian space creatures simultaneously across several downtown locations during Annie Gosfield’s War of the Worlds; and shuffling multiple scenic backgrounds and costumed characters like a deck of cards across a film-studio set during John Cage’s insanely sarcastic operatic mash-up Europeras 1 & 2. He concludes his three-year residency with one final tour de force — a challenging presentation of composer Meredith Monk’s rarely performed opera Atlas, a transcendent symphony of sighs and other artfully evocative, ethereal vocal exhalations. Paolo Bortolameolli conducts L.A. Phil New Music Group in a rare presentation of this haunting and otherworldly opera.
