Reimagining Myths for Our World
Director Peter Sellars and composer Matthew Aucoin join forces for a conversation about the ongoing relevance of myths in our world. What do these ancient stories reveal about our psyches, why do artists in many fields continue to find themselves drawn to mythological source material, and what must they do to reimagine this material for our time?
Part of a county-wide festival of performances, conversations and happenings inspired by LA Opera’s world premiere of Eurydice, a new opera created by composer Matthew Aucoin and librettist Sarah Ruhl. Learn more about the Eurydice Found festival on the LA Opera website.
