Picture Post - Life in Lucerne

The KKL, seen from across Lake Lucerne. The hall was designed by architect Jean Nouvel, who is also designing installations for the LA Phil's production of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro in May.


The temptation to take the occasional personal day must be pretty fierce in Lucerne, what with the concert hall standing in the shadow of the Alps and all. Luckily, the hard-working members of the LA Phil's production team were nowhere near where they could see such natural beauty; rather, they were all toiling away inside the hall getting ready for tonight's performance of The Gospel According to the Other Mary.

Ah, life on the road!
