Posted in News on December 20, 2005
BMI's Linda Livingston and Ivanne Deneroff were on hand to congratulate composer Don Davis, whose new opera-in-progress Río de Sangre recently premiered at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Grant Gershon conducted the Los Angeles Master Chorale and Orchestra, with soloists Elissa Johston, Jonathan Mack, Hector Vasquez, Kerry Walsh and Christopher Campbell covering the major roles in oratorio style.

Called Davis's most ambitious work to date, the story takes place in an unnamed Latin American republic during the aftermath of a coup d'etat, where its new leader carries his misguided attempts to break the cycle of oppression.

The Emmy Award-winning composer is best know for the music to the Matrix trilogy.
