"A revelatory staging."—Los Angeles Times
Grant Gershon, conductor
Peter Sellars, director
Visionary director Peter Sellars returns to Cal Performances with a profound and stirring a cappella work by one of the Renaissance's most revered composers. Orlando di Lasso's Lagrime di San Pietro (Tears of Saint Peter) depicts the grief and remorse of the Apostle Peter, as he reflects on his fateful denial of Jesus on the day of his arrest. The work is sung by the 21 voices of the formidable Los Angeles Master Chorale, with Sellars' stark staging illuminating the biblical story's striking connections to the concerns of our modern world. Lagrime was praised by the Los Angeles Times in its Disney Hall premiere as, "a major accomplishment for the Master Chorale, which sang and acted brilliantly. It is also a major accomplishment for music history."
Run time: approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
