About this Performance
“For two hundred years the Europeans have been sending us their operas. Now I’m sending them back.” That’s how John Cage described Europeras 1 & 2, and he wasn’t kidding. The LA Phil, The Industry and LA Phil Artist-Collaborator Yuval Sharon team up again for a wild new production of Cage’s radical revelation.
Please note: This performance runs approximately 2 hours 30 minutes including intermission.
