Opera UCLA presents a staged version of Händel's L'Allegro, Il Penseroso ed Il Moderato

Director: James Darrah

The UCLA Early Music Ensemble will be conducted by Steven Stubbs


The Joyous, the Melancholy, and the Contented: a family's grief, fears and expectations collide in one transformative afternoon at the Clark Library. Milton's poignant and timeless poem combine with Handel's thrilling music in a staged oratorio of dramatic virtuosity. Director James Darrah and a design team of UCLA alumni re-imagine Handel's L'Allegro as a new, immersive theatrical event in which a patriarchal funeral in 1920s Los Angeles is pulled at its seams. Acclaimed early music specialist Stephen Stubbs conducts.

This performance is made possible by funding from the Max Gluck Foundation and the Rigler Deutsch Foundation.
