War of the Worlds

November 18, 2017

Some of the hottest names in Los Angeles’s new music scene come together for this one-of-a-kind performance. Yuval Sharon has adapted Orson Welles’s original “War of the Worlds” radio script into an opera, the live performance of which will be broadcast throughout downtown Los Angeles as performers at WWII-era sirens report back on the “alien invasion.”

21CM Takeaway: With direction by newly minted MacArthur Fellow Yuval Sharon of Los Angeles opera company The Industry, music by composer and sound artist Annie Gosfield and a performance conducted by Christopher Rountree of chamber group wild Up, this is a must-see for talent alone. Add in the spectacle of a “War of the Worlds” staging, and this becomes a performance to remember.
