Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Dorothy Chandler Pavilion Review

One of the Music Center's most cherished and impressive music halls, the 3,200-seat landmark remains an elegant space to see performances with its plush red seats and giant gold curtain. It presents an array of music programs and L.A. Opera's classics from September through June. Music director Plácido Domingo encourages fresh work (in 2006, for instance, he ushered in Grendel, a new opera staged by the hypercreative director Julie Taymor) as much as old favorites (the 2010 season marked the world renown production of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen or Ring Cycle that ran in conjunction with Ring Festival L.A.—a celebration of the arts and L.A. style). There's also a steady flow of touring ballet and modern ballet companies.
