Orlande de Lassus – Lagrime di San Pietro
From visionary theater and opera director Peter Sellars comes his most personal work to date – a staging of Orlande de Lassus’ Lagrime di San Pietro (“The Tears of Saint Peter”). This profoundly moving Renaissance masterpiece depicts the grief and remorse of the Apostle Peter after he disavows knowledge of Jesus Christ on the day of his arrest and crucifixion. Sung by 21 a capella singers of the Los Angeles Master Chorale, Lagrime is refracted through Mr. Sellars’ signature contemporary lens, suggesting a powerful allegory about facing our past head-on in order to forge a more fulfilling future.
“A major accomplishment for the Master Chorale, which sang and acted brilliantly. It is also a major accomplishment for music history.” – Los Angeles Times
