Long Beach Opera Cancels ‘Asunción’ World Premiere

By David Salazar

Long Beach Opera has canceled the world premiere of “Asunción.”

The work was scheduled to open on July 13, 20 and 21 and was set to be co-presented with Latino Theater Company and East LA Creative.

“This decision was made after careful consideration, with LBO deeply respecting the artists involved and their creative process,” said the official statement issued by the company.

There will instead be a new event taking place on the original dates and tickets will be transferred directly or refunded for those who wish for it.

The company is in the midst of planning its 2025 season.
