WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Celebrate composer Lou Harrison's 90th Birthday and join Ensemble Parallèle for the World Premiere of the final version of his opera, Young Caesar - a lavish transethnic work that explores the love affair between Julius Caesar and Nicomedes, King of Bithynea. Inspired by Chinese opera, Harrison created a new operatic style where the East meets West. Young Caesar grapples with many contemporary issues that were at the heart of Harrison's exploration - the Pacific Rim and its exotic colors, new theater and homosexuality. Young Caesar is co-presented by Ensemble Parallèle, BluePrint and the University of California, Santa Cruz. Additional Ticket Information: $60.00 Orchestra and Orchestra Box $55.00 Seniors and Students - Orchestra & Orchestra Box $48.00 Upper Orchestra, Terrace and Terrance Box $45.00 Seniors and Students - Upper Orchestra, Terrace & Terrace Box
