LA Opera Performs Moby-Dick.

One of the greatest American novels comes thrillingly to life on the L.A. Opera stage in six performances Oct. 31-Nov. 28.

Epic in every sense, Moby-Dick comes to Los Angeles after a series of triumphs around the world. In it, a fanatical sea captain’s unrelenting obsession drives his crew into the face of death and destruction as they search the vast oceans for a monster. Returning as Captain Ahab is the sensational Jay Hunter Morris. Based on Herman Melville’s classic novel, Jake Heggie’s sweeping, gorgeously detailed opera has taken its place as a contemporary masterpiece. “Sumptuous and stirring! Theatrically stunning,” enthused the San Francisco Chronicle. “An undeniable success,” opined the New York Times. Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, 135 N. Grand Ave., downtown, 213.972.0711. laopera.org
