Classical Pick of the Week: Where the Wild Things Are
The LA Opera has a double dose of Placido Domingo this week, as the titular Francesco Foscari in the Two Foscari on Tuesday and as conductor for Don Giovanni on Wednesday. If you're not there for the music, there's a firebreather!
Dudamel will conduct this Thursday at the Disney Hall. The program is described as "cutting edge video technology meets classic hand-drawn illustration in a new production of Oliver Knussen’s rambunctious fantasy opera setting of the late Maurice Sendak’s 'Where the Wild Things Are.'" The program includes the complete Mother Goose Suite by Ravel, a piece that influenced Knussen's work. However, it's not necessarily a "kids" concert, and no one under 6 is admitted. The role of Max will be played by Claire Booth.
