Listen to live performances of excerpts from new American operas by today’s leading composers, and join in lively discussions with the featured artist.
The composer, conductor, pianist and writer Matthew Aucoin — called opera’s "rising wunderkind" by The New York Times — becomes artist-in-residence this season at Los Angeles Opera, a position that will culminate in a world-premiere opera in 2019. Aucoin’s oeuvre as a composer extends from solo piano to opera to chamber and orchestral music. His first opera, Crossing, was premiered by American Repertory Theater in 2015, and Second Nature, a one-act eco-opera for youth commissioned by Lyric Opera of Chicago, followed soon after. Aucoin is currently at work on a new opera for the New Works Program of the Metropolitan Opera and Lincoln Center Theater.
