Music by Lou Harrison
Libretto by Robert Gordon
New Performance Edition by The Industry
Directed by Yuval Sharon
Conducted by Marc Lowenstein
Presented by LA Philharmonic

California maverick Lou Harrison’s sublime and sinuous, percussion-rich depiction of Caesar’s love for another man receives a major performance.

Our new performance edition fuses Harrison’s original gamelan-inspired orchestration with his later, lush orchestral writing. A recording of the live performance will insure the piece reaches as wide an audience as possible.

The production is in collaboration with the LA Philharmonic: click here to read more about the partnership.
