Gustavo to celebrate Verdi's 200th at the Hollywood Bowl
This summer at the Hollywood Bowl, LA Phil Music Director Gustavo Dudamel celebrates the 200th anniversary of Verdi’s birth with a concert performance of the opera Aida and two performances of the Italian composer's Requiem. On August 11, Gustavo kicks off his all-Verdi week at the Hollywood Bowl with a one-night-only performance of Verdi's Aida, conducting soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska in the title role, the Los Angles Philharmonic, and an international cast of soloists. On August 13 and 15, Gustavo - who returns for his fourth season at the Hollywood Bowl - leads two performances of Verdi's powerful Requiem with the LA Phil, the Los Angeles Master Chorale and an international quartet of soloists comprising soprano Julianna Di Giacomo, mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung, tenor Vittorio Grigolo, bass Ildebrando D’Arcangelo.
