At 7:00 p.m. in the Pavilion, Ravinia President and CEO Welz Kauffman will moderate a discussion of tonight’s performance with director Peter Sellars and conductor Grant Gershon.
The always-stunning 21 a cappella singers of Los Angeles Master Chorale (The Gospel According to the Other Mary and Tan Dun’s Water Passion) returns to Ravinia with the groundbreaking production of Orlande de Lassus’s Lagrime di San Pietro (The Tears of Saint Peter) conducted by Grant Gershon and directed by the irrepressible Peter Sellars. The LA Times called the dramatic masterpiece—about personal responsibility as reflected through Peter’s denial of Jesus—“a major accomplishment for music history.”
