Rare Operatic Masterpiece Comes to the Historic Los Angeles Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles
Raphaela Papadakis seems to like ‘playing with fire’. After her acclaimed performance as the put-upon maid, Anna, in Independent Opera’s production of Šimon Voseček’s Beidermann and the Arsonists at Sadler’s Wells last year, she is currently rehearsing for the premiere this week of And London Burned, a new opera by Matt Rogers which has been commissioned by Temple Music Foundation to commemorate the 350th anniversary of The Great Fire of London.
Lyric Opera of Los Angeles will perform the rare 19th century opera "Manon Lescaut" by D.F.E. Auber in April, 2006 at the historic Los Angeles Theatre.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 2, 2006 -- Lyric Opera of Los Angeles is proud to announce that tickets are available for purchase online for their Spring, 2006 production of "Manon Lescaut" by D.F.E. Auber. This production will take place, appropriately, at the historic Los Angeles Theatre (http://www.LosAngelesTheatre.com) in downtown L.A. As part of the ongoing downtown LA renewal project, and efforts by the Los Angeles Conservancy (http://www.laconservancy.org), many of the grand theatres of yester-year are trying to bring live performances back to the former Broadway District. The beautiful Los Angeles Theatre was once the crown-jewel of this downtown Broadway District and is a fitting location for the oppulent French opera being presented by the Lyric Opera of Los Angeles.
