Yuval Sharon returns for the second year in his residency as Artist-Collaborator, beginning with War of the Worlds, a world-premiere performance piece with music by Annie Gosfield. Sharon adapted the original radio script from Orson Welles’ 1938 “fake news” story for an ambitious staging simultaneously inside Walt Disney Concert Hall and at three siren sites in DTLA.

Sharon also stages the U.S. premiere of Andrew Norman’s A Trip to the Moon, an opera for the whole family (ages 6 and up) and an LA Phil co-commission. Sharon’s second year culminates with a staged production of Mahler’s Song of the Earth in collaboration with Chilean theatre company TEATROCINEMA, featuring soloists Russell Thomas and Tamara Mumford and Gustavo Dudamel conducting the orchestra.
