Boys in Trouble! May 17 - May 18, 2019  
Highways Performance Space and Gallery Boys in Trouble!
 
Trailblazing transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey returns to the stage with Boys in Trouble, a new evening of dances that unpack masculinity with unflinching honesty — from unapologetically trans and queer perspectives. True Transsexual Confessions. An unabashed love letter between queer Black men. A sendup of all things Macho. A queer spin on butchness. Real talk about whiteness. An invitation to look deeply at Shame. A witness to hurt and heartbreak. A roadmap for another way. Boys in Trouble is an extravaganza of full-throttle dance, raw emotion, irreverent humor, exquisite queer partnering and super-vulnerable storytelling … all performed with Sean Dorsey Dance’s signature precision, guts and deep humanity. Sean Dorsey is celebrated as the nation’s first acclaimed transgender modern dance choreographer. His works have been praised as “exquisite…poignant and important” (BalletTanz), “trailblazing” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “evocative, compelling, elegant” (LA Weekly). Dorsey has toured his work to 30 cities.

La Traviata Jun 1 - Jun 22, 2019  
Dorothy Chandler Pavilion La Traviata
 
There's a reason that Verdi's tragic romance La Traviata is one of the most popular operas on the planet. Of course, there's the music, with exquisite arias like "Sempre libera" and the mournful "Addio del passato." Then there's the bittersweet love story of the beautiful, pleasure-loving yet frail courtesan Violetta (played by soprano Adela Zaharia), who unexpectedly finds true (and ultimately tragic) love with a younger man. But above all, what sets La Traviata in a league of its own is its humanity and its heart. It's a truly timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice, and in the character of Violetta, Verdi has given us one of opera's most fascinating heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth. Now LA Opera brings this iconic 1853 opera to the stage -- and you can get tickets first with this exclusive pre-sale.
