Fodor's Review

Los Angeles opera and ballet fans make the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion a must-go-to and with good reason: Performances here manage to remain fresh with a balance of both new and classic opera and ballet performances. L.A. Opera continues as the long-running resident company and touring ballet companies perform here also.

Another treat in itself: As the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion nears its 50th anniversary—the first performance was held on December 6, 1964—the music

hall still looks as elegant as ever, from the requisite theater curtain, large-scale crystal chandeliers and resident art collection. Ticket holders can attend free pre-opera talks, which happen one hour before the performance. Music Director James Conlon hosts the talks, although other scholars have hosted as well. Reservations aren't necessary, but early arrival is suggested due to the limited space.
