work being performed: the little match girl passion

IlluminArts is thrilled to present David Lang's 2008 Pulitzer Prize winning piece, the little match girl passion, in a fully staged performance inspired by the highly anticipated exhibit of Colombian sculptor, Doris Salcedo at PAMM.  Renowned director R.B. Schlather will direct the performance.  The New York Times has described Schlather as "having a gift at drawing out vivid performances," and Opera News declared, "Schlather created an intense, accessible, immersive experience that illuminated the emotional heart of [the] work....the entire theatrical experience, taken as a whole, was revelatory."  Join us as he shapes this unforgettable story of hope in the midst of suffering.

Los Angeles, California
* World premiere
LA Opera
Los Angeles, California
work being performed: anatomy theater

Based on actual 18th-century texts, Anatomy Theater follows the astonishing progression of an English murderess: from confession to execution and, ultimately, public dissection before a paying audience of fascinated onlookers. Through the miracle of opera, she sings through it all.

Anatomy Theater conjures a time when “specialists” traveled from town to town in pre-modern Europe, conducting public dissections of the corpses of executed criminals, seeking evidence of moral corruption in the interior of the human body. Written by Pulitzer Prize–winning composer David Lang and world-renowned visual artist Mark Dion, Anatomy Theater is a joyous, tuneful and grisly theatrical event.
