Concert Details

Ron Roberts, chansonnier

Described by the L.A. Times as a “mad monster mash for goofy singer and goofy orchestra,” Austrian composer H. K. Gruber’s Frankenstein!! (1979) invokes many of pop culture’s best-known boogeymen and superheroes. Ron Roberts lends his thespian and vocal talents to our performance of Gruber’s quirky masterwork, as well as William Walton’s Façade, a setting of experimental poetry by Edith Sitwell.
