Lagrime di San Pietro (Tears of Saint Peter)

May 17, 2019

Orlando di Lasso, composer
Grant Gershon, conductor
Peter Sellars, director


Director Peter Sellars returns to Cal Performances with an a cappella work by one of the Renaissance's most revered composers. Orlando di Lasso's Lagrime di San Pietro (Tears of Saint Peter) depicts the grief and remorse of the Apostle Peter, as he reflects on his fateful denial of Jesus on the day of his arrest. The madrigal is sung by the 21 voices of the formidable Los Angeles Master Chorale, with Sellars' stark staging illuminating the biblical story's striking connections to the concerns of our modern world.
