Why See Los Angeles Opera - La Belle Et La Bete?

Philip Glass's reinvention of the 1946 classic

Given that the world has once again fallen in love with Beauty and the Beast following the release of their live-action movie this year, now is the perfect time for LA Opera to present a special screening and operatic spectacle of Jean Cocteau's haunting 1946 film masterpiece. Composer Philip Glass is responsible for this acclaimed re-scoring of Cocteau's seminal movie. Described by Glass himself as his most challenging project, the new score replaces Georges Auric's original score and its dialogue with a full classical opera.

Originally conceived in 1994 as part of a trilogy of Cocteau re-scored works including Orphee and Les Enfants Terribles, the famously minimalist composer surgically removed the original soundtrack to replace with a live operatic score, complete with projections from the movie. His Ensemble was created in 1968 as an outlet for his experimental minimalist works, including his first opera, Einstein On The Beach and is still going strong today under his dynamic leadership. This innovative combination of screen and opera will be conducted by Michael Riesman.
