Los Angeles Master Chorale: Lagrime di San Pietro
February 6, 2021 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Location: Bing Concert Hall - Map Link
Founded in 1964 by conductor Roger Wagner and now led by Grant Gershon, the Los Angeles Master Chorale is a resident company of Walt Disney Concert Hall. Recognized for its distinctive sound and distinguished repertoire, the choir presents a dramatic staging by Peter Sellars of the late-Renaissance masterpiece by Orlando di Lasso. With each madrigal set to the poetry of Luigi Tansillo (1510–1568), the 75-minute a cappella rendition lays bare the seven stages of grief suffered by St. Peter after disavowing Jesus Christ.
Viewed through a contemporary lens and the extraordinary mind of Sellars, the work achieves an emotional pitch that has earned recognition and acclaim worldwide.
