  1. Review: L.A. Opera pushes the envelope in a Didoa and a BluebeardaRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 27, 2014 | San Bernardino County Sun

    Los Angeles Opera has hitched its wagon to Barrie Kosky, the ultra-creative Australian director who caused a sensation last season with his eye-popping production of Mozart's “The Magic Flute” that presented the opera as a dazzlingly original combination of a vaudeville show and a silent movie. Kosky's second offering is a seemingly mismatched double bill of Henry Purcell's baroque opera masterpiece “Dido and Aeneas” and Bella Bartok's 1918 psycho-sexual thriller “Bluebeard's Castle.” The pairing was not my idea,” Kosky admitted at a pre-performance news event.
