This season, we explore the necessity of human connection. We explore love—and love interrupted. We witness people who are confronted by a world incompatible with who they are or who they wish to be. A composer drowns in envy of another’s fame; a queen succumbs to the enormity of love, lost; a woman stands defiant in the face of societal conformity; star-crossed lovers confront the prejudices which keep them apart. If this last year has shown us anything, it is that human connections are integral to our spiritual and mental well-being. This season, we celebrate our connections to one another, in all of their complexity, messiness, and beauty.
We continue to work closely with our local health officials, and will be implementing rigorous COVID-19 safety protocols to protect the well-being of our staff, artists, musicians, and patrons. Health recommendations will continue to evolve as vaccination rates continue to climb.
The future of our artform is bright. Soon, we will be seated together in the California Theatre, basking in the resplendent voices and glorious orchestral music that we all know and love.
