Long Beach Stewart Copeland

Genius and Madness Come Face to Face in May

face-to-face-lbo Why was Michael Gordon inspired by the anguished letters Van Gogh wrote his brother Theo? What prompted Stewart Copeland to compose music about the paranoid murderer in Edgar Allen Poe’s Tell-Tale Heart? As a prelude to performances of their operas later in May, Gordon (co-founder of Bang on a Can) and Copeland (drummer/founder of The Police) will discuss the creation of their borderline works with Long Beach Opera (LBO) Artistic and General Director Andreas Mitisek in “Face…To Face…To Face,” an LBO Coincidence (special event) taking place on Saturday afternoon May 4 at 2:00PM at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, LA, CA 90036.
