Los Angeles Opera
With Los Angeles being more known as a film metropolis it’s sometimes easy to forget about all the other entertainment venues the city has to offer, such as the LA Opera. This February 2009 I went to see "The Magic Flute" in German. I was blown away by the beautiful stage design, direction and performance of this production, as much as by the architecture of the opera house. Living in Los Angeles, you never know how people will dress, so I was afraid to over-dress, but everyone there (a multi-cultural crowd of all ages) was clad for the occasion. As for food and drink, a number of hotels provide shuttles to the Opera house if you dine there before or after. Deals are listed on the LA Opera House website.
