The Industry and Sharon created a new production of California maverick Lou Harrison’s sublime and sinuous, percussion-rich depiction of Caesar’s love for another man. The new performance edition fused Harrison’s original gamelan-inspired orchestration with his later, lush orchestral writing. There was also a recording of the live performance.
