Opera UCLA presents Charpentier’s “La Descente d’Orphée aux Enfers”
William Andrews Clark Memorial Library – UCLA Watch Livestream

Baroque master and GRAMMY® Award winner Stephen Stubbs leads students from Opera UCLA in Marc-Antoine Charpentier's beautiful and moving French baroque rendition of the Orpheus myth. Superstar director and UCLA alumnus James Darrah stages the production, which also includes a satirical Orpheus piece by André Campra from Le Carnaval de Venise.

This performance is made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of Drs. David and Irmgard Dobrow, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2019–20 Dobrow Series.

 

Seating is limited. Purchase your tickets via the Clark Library website.
