About this Performance

This event has been canceled. To protect its audiences, musicians, employees, and community from the spread of COVID-19 and in response to the evolving guidance from Governor Gavin Newsom, Mayor Eric Garcetti, and Los Angeles County health officials, the LA Phil is canceling the remainder of its concerts for the 2019/2020 season at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Due the large number of concerts impacted, please don’t contact us immediately. Details on how to manage canceled tickets will be emailed to ticketholders. At that time, ticketholders will be able to:

  • Donate your tickets and receive a tax deduction for the total ticket value. Your generosity will directly support the musicians, teachers, students, and staff of our orchestra, ensuring that our community is alive with music, today and always.
  • Exchange your tickets for any future 2020/21 season performance or LA Phil-presented concert in the Hollywood Bowl 2020 season. All exchange fees will be waived.
  • Receive a refund for the value of your ticket.

Composed in a lush, post-Wagnerian idiom, Schoenberg’s “Songs of the Gurre Castle,” taken together, are a massive, ambitious epic about love, death, and nature. Calling for five vocal soloists, a narrator, three male choruses, a large mixed chorus, and a tremendous orchestra (including ten horns and four harps!), it uses its extravagant forces to tell of a tragic love triangle. 

These performances are made possible by generous support from the Lloyd E. Rigler – Lawrence E. Deutsch Foundation.

Concerts in the Thursday 2 subscription series are generously supported by the Otis Booth Foundation.
