The Los Angeles Opera received a $4 million grant to highlight the work of Jewish artists whose work was affected by the Nazis. Opera board member Marilyn Ziering, whose late husband was a Holocaust survivor, donated more than $3 million to the “Recovered Voices” project, and raised the remainder from private donors. Music director James Conlon is to conduct concerts for the project, which will include the work of composers such as Alexander Zemlinsky, Kurt Weill, Erwin Schulhoff and Viktor Ullman.
