Gustavo Dudamel returns to Hollywood Bowl for his fifth summer season

Music Director Gustavo Dudamel, in his fifth summer season at the Hollywood Bowl, conducts an all-Beethoven evening; leads a one-night-only double-bill of Italian opera, Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana and Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci; and brings together music from both sides of the hemisphere in his signature festival, Americas & Americans.

All-Beethoven Program with Renaud Capuçon, Gautier Capuçon, and Jean-Yves Thibaudet

On July 22 & 24, Dudamel is joined by a trio of French musicians – Renaud Capuçon, violin; Gautier Capuçon, cello; and Jean-Yves Thibaudet, piano – for “All-Star Beethoven,” opening with the composer’s Triple Concerto, and concluding with Symphony No. 5.

Operatic double bill: Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci, July 27

Gustavo continues to share his lifelong passion for opera with a special night of Italian masterpieces, Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci, July 27. The Los Angeles Philharmonic is joined by the Los Angeles Master Chorale and Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, and a stellar cast that includes Michelle DeYoung, Julianna Di Giacomo, Christopher Maltman, Nancy Maultsby, Lucas Meachem, Tamara Mumford, Stuart Neill, and Christopher Tiesi.

Americas & Americans: Rubén Blades (July 29) and Noche De Cine (July 31)

Americas & Americans, a festival first presented during Dudamel’s inaugural 2009/10 season at Walt Disney Concert Hall and revived at the Bowl in 2012, exemplifies his vision of one American culture across continents. Latin-jazz and salsa singer Rubén Blades joins Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic on Tuesday, July 29, in a program that includes orchestral dances as well as selections from Blades’s career.

Turning an eye towards cinematic music, the Americas & Americans festival concludes July 31 with Noche De Cine, celebrating film composers from North and South America, with a special guest performance by Gustavo Santaolalla (Babel, Amores perros, The Motorcycle Diaries) and a suite from Dudamel’s own score to Libertador. The program also includes a suite from McCreary’s Battlestar Galactica; Romer/Zeitlin’s “Once There Was a Hushpuppy” from Beasts of the Southern Wild, a suite from Newman’s Angels in America, and music from Kauderer’s The Secret In Their Eyes
