Verdi's "The Two Foscari" is scheduled to begin performances on Sept. 15 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. The new staging by director Thaddeus Strassberger is a co-production with the Palau de la Música in Valencia, Spain; the Theater an der Wien in Vienna; and London's Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
Domingo, who turned 71 this year, serves as the general director of L.A. Opera.
