The LA Phil has developed a long-term relationship with Louis Andriessen, one of the most influential and imaginative composers of our time, resulting this season in two major premieres.
In October, Dudamel combines the U.S. premiere of Mysteriën with music by one of Andriessen’s biggest influences, Stravinsky, including The Rite of Spring (Series TH1, SA3, SU3).
Then, in May, the eyes of the world will turn to Los Angeles for the first-ever performances of Theatre of the World, a monumental work for singers, actors and orchestra, staged with video, and inspired by the life of 17th-century scholar Athanasius Kircher, the last true Renaissance man.
