Annie Gosfield: War of the Worlds (world premiere, LA Phil commission)
About This Performance
War of the Worlds
Orson Welles’ 1939 “fake news” led millions of panicked listeners to believe that aliens were invading. Yuval Sharon takes the original radio script as the basis of an audacious new performance piece to be heard around L.A. — at WWII era sirens reactivated for two-way communication — and simultaneously at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Composer Annie Gosfield’s use of radio sounds makes her the ideal collaborator in this must-see event.
Produced in collaboration with The Industry and Now Art.
