Sometimes you find yourself surrounded by genius. It’s hard to call it work when you get to listen to some of the world’s greatest opera stars singing together on one stage. Plácido Domingo, Anna Smirnova, Ana María Martínez, Ferruccio Furlanetto, and Ramón Vargas came together in this production of Don Carlo and created some kind of magic. I gain so much more than I give on a project like this - knowledge, inspiration, and camaraderie. Very proud of this one!
I'm very excited to be returning to LA Opera for their 2018-2019 season! I'll be opening the season with Don Carlo starring Placido Domingo, and closing the season with my art deco production of La Traviata directed by Marta Domingo.
