Los Angeles Master Chorale

Zellerbach Hall

Director Peter Sellars returns to Cal Performances with the Bay Area Premiere of an a cappella work by one of the Renaissance’s most revered composers. Orlando di Lasso’s Lagrime di San Pietro (Tears of Saint Peter) depicts the grief and remorse of the Apostle Peter, as he reflects on his fateful denial of Jesus on the day of his arrest. The madrigal is sung by the 21 voices of the formidable Los Angeles Master Chorale, with Sellars’ stark staging illuminating the biblical story’s striking connections to the concerns of our modern world.

Zellerbach Hall

For 40 years, across a shifting political climate for artists in his native Russia, the defiantly controversial choreographer Boris Eifman has created “works that hinge on extreme theatricality, acrobatic pas de deux, and spectacular effects” (The New Yorker) for his Saint Petersburg company. In The Pygmalion Effect, the company dances a brand-new ballet inspired by George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, set to a score by Johann Strauss Jr.
