Power to the People!
Ted Hearne's Place

A new operatic work explores the essence of place.


  • Ted HEARNE Place (West Coast premiere, LA Phil commission) Co-produced and co-commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects


About this Performance

In a country at a crossroads, where the legacy of Manifest Destiny has given rise to the complexities of gentrification, Ted Hearne’s Place explores the contentious mapping of the spaces we call home. Created with poet/librettist Saul Williams and director Patricia McGregor, Place is an 80-minute staged oratorio scored for 18 instrumentalists and six singers.

The Power to the People Festival is generously supported in part by Margaret Morgan and Wesley Phoa, GRoW @ Annenberg, the Frank Gehry Fund for Creativity, and by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
