Fodor's Review

Opera and ballet fans flock to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and with good reason: the performers here are always top-notch, and there's a good balance between new and classical works. L.A. Opera continues as the long-running resident company, and touring ballet troupes perform here as well. Now more than a half-century old, the hall looks as elegant as ever, from the requisite theater curtain to the large-scale crystal chandeliers and the art collection. Ticket holders can attend free talks that take place an hour before opera performances. Music Director James Conlon generally hosts the talks, although other scholars sometimes speak. Reservations for the talks aren't required, but it's wise to arrive early because space is limited.
