LA Opera Double Feature – Love is His Run – The Dwarf Highway 1, USA

You will not want to miss the LA Premiere of Highway 1, USA by trailblazer William Grant Still, hailed as “the Dean of African-American Composers.” Norman Garrett and Nicole Heaston star as a hardworking Black couple determined to build a better life. Conducted by James Conlon, this new staging (only the second-ever professional production of this opera) is helmed by visionary director Kaneza Schaal and production designer Christopher Myers, reuniting after their work on the stunning 2022 production of Omar.

Love is His Ruin – The Dwarf, is a gothic tale of one-sided love in a decadent Spanish court brought to life through a lush and romantic score conducted by James Conlon and composed by Alexander Zemlinsky. Tenor Rodrick Dixon stars in the title role opposite audience favorites Erica Petrocelli and Kristin Sigmundsson. Tony-winning director Darko Tresnjak conjures a royally opulent production, with costumes from fellow Tony Award winner Linda Cho.
