WUTHERING HEIGHTS

Based on the novel by Emily Brontë

Adapted and directed by Emma Rice

"I am Heathcliff! Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."

In a production shot through with music, dance, passion, and hope, Emma Rice (Brief Encounter, Tristan & Yseult) transforms Emily Brontë's masterpiece into an intoxicating story of revenge for our time. Rescued from the Liverpool docks as a child, Heathcliff is taken to live at Wuthering Heights, where he finds a kindred spirit in Catherine, and a fierce love ignites. When they are forced apart, a brutal chain of events is unleashed.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: Baroque Concerti

Making its Wallis debut, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) presents Baroque Concerti, a program of virtuosic chamber performances. Highlights include newly appointed LACO Principal Viola Yura Lee featured on one of the earliest known viola concertos, Telemann's Concerto in G Major, and Principal Trumpet David Washburn performing the pre-classical Concerto for Trumpet in E flat Major, a hidden gem by little-known Czech composer Johann Baptist Georg Neruda. The program also features Corelli's festive Concerto Grosso in D Major, Op. 6, No. 4; Geminiani's charming Concerto Grosso in D Major; and Handel's Concerto Grosso in A Major, one of the most celebrated works for strings from the Baroque era. The program is dedicated to the memory of Warner W. Henry, LACO Board Director Emeritus and a champion of chamber and Baroque music.
