The Discord Altar - a new opera

  • The Secret Rose Theatre 11246 Magnolia Blvd Los Angeles, CA, 91601 United States (map)

Homelessness continues to be an issue facing people of all ages and backgrounds in our communities. This April, OperaWorks will launch its first in an on-going series of modern operatic productions. The first, "The Discord Altar," will be an original work developed and produced in association with Fugitive Kind Theater, recently nominated for 8 Ovation Awards.

This first production, “The Discord Altar,” will premiere in April. Twelve performances will take place in North Hollywood's intimate Secret Rose Theatre to allow for a powerfully real and visceral experience. The cast of six classically trained singing-actors will present a performance that is fully staged and costumed with the musical score newly improvised each night. At the conclusion of each performance there will be a talkback session with directors of homeless shelters around the Los Angeles area.

Creators:   Meghan Brown, Playwright | Amanda McRaven, Director | Ann Baltz, Music Director & Pianist.

PERFORMANCE DATES: Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm April 10-May 3, 2015.
