Today was a deep culture dive. In the morning the “Soul of a Nation” exhibit of African American artists at the Broad Museum. Moving, powerful, beautifully curated.
Tonight at the Hollywood Bowl, Gustavo Dudamel conducted the LA Philharmonic: first Dvorak’s cello concerto in B Minor with a genius young cellist, Pablo Fernandez.
Then Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet with Benjamin Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project performing on stage, back stage, in the parking lot and across the aisles. It was fresh, daring choreography by Millepied who, in case you don’t know and among other major things about him, was the choreographer on the film “Black Swan” where he met his wife, Natalie Portman.
An inspiring evening where I shared a box with my pal Brie Larson.
