War of the Worlds
Composer:Annie Gosfield
Librettist:Yuval Sharon
Synopsis

WAR OF THE WORLDS is a new opera that eliminates the boundary between concert hall and the streets of Los Angeles. Three defunct air raid sirens located in downtown Los Angeles are re-purposed into public speakers to broadcast a live performance at Walt Disney Concert Hall, based on the infamous 1938 radio drama created by Orson Welles.

WAR OF THE WORLDS is performing simultaneously at four locations on November 12 and 18: the same piece with four different perspectives. Musicians from the Los Angeles Philharmonic play on the stage of Walt Disney Concert Hall and broadcasted through the sirens onto the streets of Los Angeles — while performers stationed at the sirens will send their live report of the alien invasion back to the concert hall.

To get the best sense of the total work, make two visits: one to Walt Disney Concert Hall and one at one of the siren locations.
