Orlando di Lasso’s heavenly masterpiece soars to breathtaking new heights under Los Angeles Master Chorale’s spine-tingling a cappella staging, devised by renowned theatre director Peter Sellars. For one special night only, experience the emotional riches of this polyphonic epic and the talents of a world-class choral ensemble in perfect harmony.

An achingly beautiful choral work too sublime to put into words, Lagrime di San Pietro was the great Renaissance composer Orlando di Lasso’s final and most famous composition. Completed just before di Lasso’s death, it conveys a powerful sense of mortality while vividly illuminating the Biblical story of St. Peter, whose grief after he denies Christ surges through this profoundly moving cycle of 20 madrigals (songs).

Cementing their place as one the world’s finest choral ensembles, the outstanding Los Angeles Master Chorale has taken di Lasso’s sacred polyphonic epic to the highest plane imaginable. Under Peter Sellars’ direction, their spine-tingling rendition matches seamlessly with elegant stage movement – a simple yet striking theatrical interpretation that demands near super-human vocal skill from the 21 singers.

For one special night only, experience the emotional riches of di Lasso’s crowning glory and the supreme talents of the Los Angeles Master Chorale in perfect harmony.

“[A] stunning performance. This beautiful Renaissance work was a triumph.” — Sydney Morning Herald
“Beautiful, mysterious and transcendent.” — The Australian
“A major accomplishment for music history.” — Los Angeles Times
