    WHAT:

    Music Director Gustavo Dudamel returns to the Hollywood Bowl— the place where he made his U.S. conducting debut in 2005 and led the free ¡Bienvenido Gustavo! community concert in October 2009 – to make his U.S. opera debut and lead the LA Phil in his first summer season subscription concerts at the iconic venue. On August 1, he leads the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a performance of Bizet’s Carmen, which he specifically chose for his first operatic performance in the United States. For his first Bowl subscription concert as Music Director, Dudamel leads the LA Phil and Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero in a program which includes Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris, as well as Three Dance Episodes from Bernstein’s On the Town and Symphonic Dances from Bernstein’s West Side Story (August 3). Dudamel continues his week at the Bowl with an international program of music from the Americas with soloist Isabel Leonard: Bernstein’s Divertimento, Villa-Lobos: “The Little Train of the Caipira” from Bachianas Brasileras No. 2, Falla’s Three-Cornered Hat Suite No. 2, Falla’s Seven Popular Spanish Songs and Ravel’s Bolero (August 5).
