The LA Opera is surprising for those of us who have been at the Met, San Francisco, and Seattle, and Portland Opera. In fact, this opera is a bargain in a wonderful venue. I can't believe how well we did! We saw Placido Domingo conducting...More

We recently saw a splendid production of Wagner's "Salome" and even from a far upstairs balcony, it was such a treat. The LA Opera is located inside Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, the place where Oscar Ceremonies were being held till not a long ago. One can...More

We were in town to attend two performances, Salome and Abduction From the Seraglio. The singing was good, but not great. Salome was quite shrill at times and the orchestra frequently covered the voices. The ladies room was totally inadequate to the number of people...More

I have attended performances at LA Opera many, many times, but my recent experience stands out. The recent LA Opera production of "Abduction From The Seraglia", by Mozart was phenomenal. Staging this classic opera on The Orient Express circa 1920's was a brilliant idea. It...More

Of the three major California opera companies, Los Angeles Opera is the youngest. Under the leadership of Placido Domingo, the company has offered standard repertory with international stars. But what has interested me is its championing of large-scale contemporary opera, such as a grand revival...More

As I expected, the production values weren't on a par with SF Opera and the Met, but the music is excellent. Worth a trip.

LA Opera is one of the big players in opera in the US. I highly recommend going if you like opera. They get big-name performers, as well as wonderful lesser known singers. They do both modern and traditional productions. The house itself is beautiful and...More

I didn't know what to expect with a classic play by Shakespeare as an opera. I learned that Verdi's Macbeth is a must see for everyone. Of course, the opera was made all that much better by Maestro James Conlan with the baton and Placid...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
