long beach opera, orpheus and euridice

Orpheus & Euridice

By Ricky Ian Gordon
June 11 – 13 Long Beach Opera

LBO's notorious opera in a pool is back! Met Star Elizabeth Futral and Grammy nominated clarinetist Todd Palmer retunr to transform the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool into the River Styx. And, if you wonder why it's part of the Festival, Ricky says “It is musical theater if I say it is! The form is mutating!”

“The pairing of Gordon and Long Beach Opera is propitious. The composer and the company both offer new directions for opera in America” - LA TIMES
