Performance Santa Fe presents the Los Angeles Master Chorale: Lagrime di San Pietro!
Visionary director Peter Sellars and the formidable Los Angeles Master Chorale have achieved “a major accomplishment for music history” (Los Angeles Times) through a powerful a cappella work by one of the most revered composers of the Renaissance period. Orlando di Lasso’s final composition, Lagrime di San Pietro (meaning Tears of Saint Peter), is an emotionally charged portrayal of the stages of Saint Peter’s grief following his denial of Christ. 21 madrigals, set to the poetry of Luigi Tansillo and transformed by Sellars’ cathartic theatrical staging, ensure an unforgettable performance. “If evidence were needed that imaginative staging can provide us access to difficult works of art, then it was offered in abundance by the Los Angeles Master Chorale” (Opera News).
