If you like your operas filled with divine intervention, giant marine animals, and more than four hundred members of the LA community, then you should definitely check out the world premiere of LA Opera's Jonah and the Whale, an original opera by composer Jack Perla and librettist Velina Hasu Houston. The story of fearful Jonah running from God straight into the mouth of a great fish will be presented onstage by pro opera singers, the LA Opera Orchestra, and a whole bunch of performers drawn from schools, churches, and choirs from every part of LA. Performances will take place at The Cathedral of our Lady of the Angels (555 West Temple Street).
