The mezzo-soprano Amanda Crider made a winsome, vulnerable and, when the story turns dark, wildly volatile Alma, who for long stretches carries the entire opera, since Elisabet does not speak.

Why See Los Angeles Opera - Persona?

The West Coast premiere!

A thrilling new opera makes its West Coast premiere this coming season, by Keeril Makan and adapted from the Ingmar Bergman 1967 psychological thriller. First performed in October 2015, the production is directed by Jay Scheib with a cast that stars Amanda Crider and Lacey Dorn as the two central women. A groundbreaking work at the movie theater when first released, it also starred Hollywood starlet Ingrid Bergman, who was married to the director.

The story revolves around a famous stage actress, who for reasons unknown is rendered mute and catatonic. Discharged from the hospital under the care of a star-struck young nurse Alma, Elisabet refuses to talk to Alma despite her best efforts. The power dynamic between the two women enter into a tug of war which elicites troubling confessions from Alma, as well as terrifying behavior from Elisabet. Who of the two will prevail in the end? And who is the desperate man in the garden, calling for Elisabet?
