Classical Notes: June 27, 2007 Archive

Lights, Camera, Puccini

Posted at 4:12 PM on June 27, 2007 by Rex Levang (2 Comments)

News comes that Woody Allen is to turn his directing talents to the world of opera, specifically Puccini's Gianni Schicchi.

It's part of a long-held wish by the Los Angeles Opera to take advantage of some of the showbiz talent that's right in their own back yard.

Any other pairings of operas and directors that you'd like to recommend to the L. A. folks? What's the ideal match-up for a Martin Scorsese, a Steven Spielberg, or a Spike Lee?
