Los Angeles Master Chorale—Canceled

February 6
Bing Concert Hall

Tao Ruspoli Marie Noorbergen

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.
