Woody Allen comes to LA Opera! (This weekend in LA)

Woody Allen to direct LA OPERA! “You know, funny to opera people is not funny to the Marx Brothers.”  “I figured, ‘Eh, I’ll be dead before it happens. I’m 72. I’m never going to make it to the opera.’” -Woody Allen, Village Voice, August 12, 2008. Although he incorporated opera music into his 2005 film Match Point, Gianni Schicchi marks Woody Allen’s foray into directing opera. Gianni Schicchi forms part of Puccini’s three-act “Il Trittico;” Academy Award-winning director William Friedkin will direct the other two acts, Il Tabarro and Suor Angelica. Gianni Schicchi, Puccini’s only black comedy, provides the perfect fodder for Woody Allen’s mischievous and magical touch. The libretto by Giovacchino Forzano, comes from a story in Dante’s Inferno and involves avarice, impersonations of the dead, and the quest for true love. Mr. Allen has expressed qualms about his debut, remarking

Cultural Events Labor Day Weekend LA

Watch an Ancient Greek tragedy like the Ancient Greeks did, in an amphitheater under the evening stars.. Agamemnon (Preview) Fri. Aug. 29, 2008. 8 pm. The Barbara & Lawrence Fleischman Theater, Getty Villa, Malibu (Sold Out Saturday the 30th) Starring Tyne Daly and Delroy Lindo http://www.getty.edu/visit/events/agamemnon.html From the Getty site: “This open-air staging by acclaimed director Stephen Wadsworth resurrects Aeschylus’ unsettling domestic drama of The House of Atreus, heard in a riveting translation by the late Robert Fagles. The victorious Agamemnon arrives home with his surviving troops after the bloody battle for Troy. As the drama unfolds, a returning soldier bears witness to unthinkable carnage, a city questions the wisdom of the decade-long war, and a family turns the violence of war in on itself. Tickets $38; $32 students/seniors. (Previews $15).”  This Side of Paradise:  Body and Landscape in L.A. Photographs
