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.
