The Death of Klinghoffer is an opera pulled straight from the headlines. Loosely based on the 1985 Palestinian Liberation Front hijacking of a cruise ship and subsequent murder of Jewish-American passenger Leon Klinghoffer, the provocative opera has been called "revolutionary" by Newsweek. Composer John Adams (Nixon in China, Doctor Atomic) and writer Alice Goodman delve into the complicated conflict between Palestinians and Jews and aim to shine a light on heroism in ordinary people. The Death of Klinghoffer is sure to spark plenty of conversation with its controversial telling of events. Learn More

This show was one of the best Nutcrackers I've been too and I went to the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion Nutcracker with the Kirkov Ballet, which was also good. There are many wow factors (no spoilers) in this show and it has high production value. I can't really believe what I paid through goldstar because honestly even if you paid full price it would have been worth it. The seats I received where row 18 slightly off center. Its 2 hours with an intermission in between. My highly active 8 year old boy was able to make to intermission and then it was a welcomed break. I would definitely recommend this to others.
For 26 years, David Wilcox's production of The Nutcracker has been seen by over a million people all over Southern California, throughout the Asian continent, as well as on television. In this annual traditional performance, Tchaikovsky's ballet comes to life as the young Clara goes on exciting journey through a battle between the Mouse King and a Nutcracker comes to life and into the Land of Sweets. Featuring Melissa Sandvig from So You Think You Can Dance.
