VERY excited to work with Conductor JONATHON HEYWARD on my upcoming original production of FIREBIRD!

JONATHON is forging a career as one the most exciting conductors of his generation. Currently Assistant Conductor of the Hallé Orchestra, the young American was also selected to be part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2017/18 Dudamel Conducting Fellowship program.

Collaborating with some beautiful folks for our mad take on the eternal Firebird. In addition to the fabulous team at LA PHIL, Cathy Cooper is designing, Conner Marx is our Stravinsky and dancers are Kelsey Landers, Isaac Huerta, Baden Silva, Derek Schiesel and Ty Wells. Hope you can join us for some truly extraordinary music and story.
