Numi Opera and its inaugural production — Alexander Von Zemlinsky’s Der Zwerg based on a story by Oscar Wilde — is announced. Directed by Numi Opera Executive Director Gail R. Gordon with musical direction by Christopher Luthi, the rarely performed opera will have two performances on Thursday, May 30, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 2, at 2 p.m. at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown LA.
The production will feature acclaimed singers Shana Blake Hill, Oriana Falla, Roberto Perlas Gómez and Rodell Rosel.
The mission of Numi Opera is to perform and bring modern relevance to lesser-known operas of all eras. Conceived by Founder and Artistic Director Gail R. Gordon, Numi Opera is a company inspired by her desire to stage works such as these two debut productions.
The Numi Opera inaugural season also includes Der Ring Des Polykrates, Erich Korngold’s first opera, which he composed in 1914, to be performed in December.
LOCATION: The Theatre at Ace Hotel, 929 South Broadway, LA 90015
