Long Beach Opera announces four productions for its 2021 “Season of Solidarity.” This season will feature collaborations with organizations and artistic leaders from throughout Los Angeles County and beyond, bringing together some of today’s most adventurous and collaborative thinkers on the contemporary music scene.

Yuval Sharon, Artistic Director of The Industry
serves as the company’s Interim Artistic Advisor,
curating the 2021 season.

 

Jennifer Rivera, C.E.O. and Executive Director of Long Beach Opera said, “Artists must continue to create, plan, dream and imagine all the creative scenarios that will once again allow audiences and artists to come together. Hope and creativity are more important now than ever before, and as such, LBO plans to move forward with our planned performances, but also to adapt to whatever environment exists when January 2021 arrives.”

The announcement of LBO’s new season comes on the heels of composer Anthony Davis receiving the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Music for The Central Park Five, which had its world premiere in June of 2019 at Long Beach Opera. This is the first time a new work produced by Long Beach Opera has received the Pulitzer.
