Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - ATLAS?
Yuval Sharon Directs Meredith Monk
Boundary pushing opera and theater maker Yuval Sharon's unconventional genius and experimental, pioneering spirit won him a MacArthur Fellowship, one of the highest accolades of the arts world, in 2017. His bold, immersive and multi-sensory vision comes to the Walt Disney Hall this summer, where he will direct the LA Philharmonic Music Group and celebrated Chilean conductor Paolo Bortolameolli in Meredith Monk's ATLAS: an opera in three parts.
Based on the story of Belgian-French explorer, spiritualist, anarchist and writer Alexandra David-Neel, most famously known for her journey to Tibet in 1924, a time when the country was forbidden to foreigners. One of Monk's most beautifully realised works, ATLAS punctuates the wandering, loneliness and rediscovery of the empowered adventurer with vocal phrases and vowels that often sound like chants in a foreign tongue, as well as an instrumental chamber ensemble including folk instruments like the shawm and the sheng.
Performance date: 11 June 2019
