Rapsodie espangole!

SO excited to return to the LA Phil to direct and choreograph a new production of RAVEL’S Bolero for Toyota Symphonies for Youth!

Love working with the extraordinary Ottavio Taddei, Natacha Bachour and Micaela DePauli in creating this new dance theater piece inspired by Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole. Telling story through dance and music is what I live for!

The second part of the show - inspired by factory machines and Spanish dance, Bolero, is sure to quicken the pulse. It’ll be impossible not to get caught up in the insistent rhythms and careening melody as the Los Angeles Philharmonic performs this timeless piece.

Sat, April 6th & 20th || 11am @ Disney Hall

Don Carlo the Magnificent

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!
