About This Performance

Cuban singer Omara Portuondo has been continually performing in public since the age of 15, a legendary singer, part of the historical project Buena Vista Social Club, whose voice reflects a long, creative life of passion and music. She has been singing professionally for an incredible 70+ years and this concert will be her debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel.

Please note: The National Ballet of Cuba has been forced to withdraw from the previously announced The Nutcracker with Dudamel concerts at the Hollywood Bowl on Tuesday, August 14, and Thursday, August 16 (both at 8pm), due to challenges with visas. Concerts with Omara Portuondo and Oscar D’León, both with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, have been announced in their place.
