Barry Manilow returns to his first love, writing musicals, with the much-anticipated Harmony. This musical story of the world's first hit boy band is based on the true tale of six talented young Germans who came together in the 1920s and took the world by storm. With a signature blend of sophisticated close harmonies and hilarious stage antics, the Comedian Harmonists were an actual group that sold millions of records, starred in films and packed the prestigious concert halls around the globe -- until the rise of Nazi Germany split them apart. Inspired by the story, Manilow and his co-creator, writer-lyricist Bruce Sussman, created this musical with an original score that celebrates this extraordinary group of friends and their quest for true harmony in one of the most discordant periods of world history.

Puccini's opera La Boheme was the hit musical of its time. It's an opera about real people, for real people. Baz Luhrmann's production will bring the greatest love story ever sung to the people for whom Puccini wrote it: everyone.
While remaining faithful to Puccini's lush score, Luhrmann's production is reset in a remarkable design by Academy Award-winner Catherine Martin. The big opera houses of the world seat as many as 4500, but at the Ahmanson you'll be close to the action. This great love story is told in a new, sexy, easy-to-understand way by gorgeous young performers you'll fall in love with.
Most of all, what makes this production of La Boheme a must-see is Baz Luhrmann's extraordinary vision--his unique talent for creating a world of sight, sound and feeling that takes you on a thrilling emotional journey to a place you've never been.
