SCHOENBERG IN HOLLYWOOD -- WORLD PREMIERE -- Boston Lyric Opera's World Premiere of Tod Machover's new work about the life of composer Arnold Schoenberg after he fled to American from Nazi Europe features Machover's futuristic take on opera including mixed electronic/traditional orchestrations, technologically advanced staging, and a film that runs behind and throughout the action.  (NOTE: acclaimed British director Braham Murray, who was to helm this work based on a scenario he developed with Machover, passed away last week. BLO is working to name a successor soon.)  Longtime Machover collaborator Omar Ebrahim takes on the meaty title role.  BLO's first Principal Artist in Residence Jesse Darden, and Emerging Artist alumna Sara Womble play several roles.  David Angus conducts.  Nov. 14-18 at the Emerson Paramount Center's Orchard Stage.
