KUCO presents:   Los Angeles Opera

In just a quarter-century of existence, LA Opera has become, under the leadership of The Eli and Edythe Broad's General Director Plácido Domingo, the  fourth largest opera company in the United States.  Mark Swed from the Los Angeles Times declares that the LA Opera "...stands out as a newly important force in American Opera."

Conductor and Music Director James Conlon has developed a vast symphonic, operatic and choral repertoire and has established enduring relationships with the world's most prestigious symphony orchestras and opera houses. Through worldwide touring to North and South America, Asia, and Europe, an extensive discography, frequent television appearances and guest speaking engagements, he has become one of today's most recognized conductors.


Post-opera programming is locally produced by volunteer Lane Whitesell
