Parked at Hollywood & Highland and got food at CPK so parking would be validated. Always works like a charm but this time, the Dolby Theater had a show that got out the same time as the concert, so the entire garage was emptying out at once. It took us at least an hour and a half to get out -- it was a nightmare! Definitely check the Dolby Theater schedule before parking there.

Manuel de Falla, composer

Manuel de Falla published very little, subjecting his works to careful revision before offering them to the public. The pains he took are evident in every bar. He was an inspired craftsman who combined an immersion in Andalusian and Catalonian folk music with a painstaking study of the classical style of Haydn. Falla’s music is tuneful and approachable for both of these reasons, but he was also part of the European avant-garde – the Ballets Russes staged his The Three-Cornered Hat with sets by Picasso and an orchestra conducted by Ernst Ansermet, a production that secured Falla an international reputation that shows no signs of fading.
