by Tyler Peterson - Aug 20, 2013

Long Beach Opera (LBO) takes opera onto the shores of Long Beach for Peter Lieberson's King Gesar. One of the greatest adventure stories ever told plays out atop galloping flourishes, prayerful melodies and percussive battle cries in this1991 chamber work recounting the desert trials, grand horse race and fierce battles of the legendary Tibetan warrior King Gesar's journey toward enlightenment. Douglas Penick's libretto is drawn from the 12th century epic poem of the same name. The setting sun and crisp sea air of Harry Bridges Memorial Park augments LBO Artistic and General Director Andreas Mitisek's marriage of the oral rituals of the past with LBO's look at opera of the future. King Gesar arrives in Long Beach September 7, 13, 14 at 8:00PM.
