As part of its Recovered Voices project, Los Angeles Opera presents two stunning yet overlooked one-act operas as part of its 2023/24 season.

Composed in the 40s but only receiving its premiere in 1963, it details the struggles of an ordinary couple seeking a better life.

Los Angeles Opera - La Traviata at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Los Angeles Opera - La Traviata

One of the very best in the repertoire, Verdi's La Traviata is a sweeping love story set against the backdrop of decadent Paris high society where the celebrated courtesan Violetta eschews her wealthy suitors for the simple life with poor Alfredo. In this sumptuous production courtesy of the San Francisco Opera, our heroine is portrayed by Rachel Willis-Sorenson, opposite Liparit Avetisyan as her besotted suitor.

Los Angeles Opera - Turandot at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Los Angeles Opera - Turandot

As savage as she is beautiful, Princess Turandot has concocted a series of nefarious tasks to put off potential suitors. If you lose, you die at the hands of the executioner, if you win? Well, no one ever has. That is until the besotted Prince Calaf accepts the challenge. With a little savagery of his own, he throws himself into the tasks, growing ever closer to the hard-hearted Princess. This stunning production with a design from David Hockney marks the triumphant return of Puccini's fantasy to the LA Opera for the first time in two decades!

Ballet Hispanico at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Ballet Hispanico

Formed in 1971 by Venezuelan dancer ex-pat Tina Ramirez, this New York-based dance company dedicates itself to preserving and celebrating the legacy of Latin dance, and the experiences of its Latin and Hispanic dancers, who make up the company. Having performed for more than two million people in the United States, Europe, and South America, they have brought the same recognition to their dancer as Alvin Ailey has done for black dancers.
