This upcoming opera at the Music Center is based on Herman Melville's classic novel: a fanatical sea captain’s unrelenting obsession for revenge drives his entire crew into the face of death and destruction as they explore the vast and mysterious oceans in search of a monster. Jake Heggie’s sweeping, gorgeously detailed score for this Moby Dick has already taken its rightful place as a true contemporary masterpiece. Learn more about this thrilling production on Sunday, October 18th at Crowell Public Library with a fascinating audio visual program in the Library’s Barth Community Room.

Sean is also a board member of the Opera League of Los Angeles and is eager to share his expertise with opera fans new and old.

Opera has something for everyone. It can sweep you away to foreign lands, take you back in time, dazzle you with pageantry and bring history to life. It is literature, social studies, cultural diversity, multiple languages and most of all, it is exciting!
