RSVP | A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE: THE PLAY VS. THE OPERA
LA Opera and The Antaeus Company are hosting a panel discussion on Monday, May 12 that will dive into the classic play and now opera, A Streetcar Named Desire. The event will be held at Boston Court in Pasadena. Our own CEO, Terence McFarland, will moderate the event.
The panel will feature Brad Dalton, the director of LA Opera’s upcoming production of the opera A Streetcar Named Desire and Apollo Dukakis, stage director of The Antaeus Company’s recent production of the play of the same title. The two directors will be joined in conversation by respective “Stanleys”: Ryan McKinny of LA Opera, and Joe Holt of The Antaeus Company.
Hear the differences and similarities in staging a play versus an opera, learn about character development techniques, and how two distinctly different worlds approach this classic Tennessee Williams story. Come for a free evening of engaging conversation between some of the most creative minds in theater. A free wine reception will follow the discussion.
