Anatomy Theater’s Timur, All District Honor Band leader Tony White
David Lang’s new opera is not for the faint of heart. “Anatomy Theater” treats the audience as if they are 18th century spectacle-seekers, gathered for one doctor’s bloody exploration of a main character who is both criminal and victim. We talk to the tenor, Timur, who plays the doctor’s conflicted assistant. We also talk to the man in charge of LAUSD’s All District Honor Band, Tony White, about what it takes to get LAUSD musicians ready to play world-class venues like the Rose Parade and the Hollywood Bowl. On Ask the Dean: a musician’s conundrum… save your hearing, or hear your playing.
