In Green Umbrella: Theater of the Outrageous, L.A. Phil’s creative chair, John Adams, will lead the orchestra in works pushing creative boundaries till they just about snap. John Zorn’s short chamber symphony For Your Eyes Only ranges from bristling orchestral cacophony to jazzy horn patches and keening wind pieces. Austrian composer Olga Neuwirth’s Hommage à Klaus Nomi pays a video-aided tribute to the late German art-pop star with a selection of his songs arranged for countertenor and ensemble. Austrian theater-music fabulist HK Gruber’s “pan-demonium” Frankenstein!! sets children’s rhymes in a madhouse of toy instruments and percussion, with illustrations by Sebastiaan Van Doninck.
