About This Performance

See all Yuval Sharon concerts

A fresh new work from prize-winning composer Andrew Norman takes its inspiration from Georges Méliès' 1902 silent film version of a Jules Verne classic.

Though this two-hour program is not a 'kids concert,' it may be appropriate for some children based on parental discretion. All patrons, regardless of age, must sit quietly through the performance. No one under 6 will be admitted.

Programs, artists, dates, times, prices and availability subject to change.


Come early on Friday night, starting at 6:30pm, and enjoy complimentary drinks and a spectacular view of the DTLA skyline from the Garden. Then head over to the Upbeat Live pre-concert talk in BP Hall (details below).
