LA Opera brings Gaetano Donizetti's tragic opera Lucia di Lammermoor back to Los Angeles for the first time in a decade. Loosely based on Sir Walter Scott's historical novel, Lucia concerns the emotionally fragile Lucy Ashton, who's caught in a vicious feud between families. The setting is the hills of Scotland (Lammermoor) in the 17th century. Donizetti wrote Lucia in 1835 -- a time when Europeans were highly interested in the history and culture of Scotland, having romanticized its violent wars and feuds, and its folklore and mythology. This production is sung in Italian, with English supertitles. Learn More

If you want to hear a great youth symphony, don't bother with these clowns, just see the American Youth Symphony or the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra. They're both free and far, far, far, better muscians.
Beyond the instrumentalists, the special guests made me embarrassed to be a senior. Such egos and from people who can no longer stand up, much less carry a tune. Bad!
Wink Martindale was great as always and the comedian made me laugh my butt off, so the evening wasn't a total loss.
Sometimes you get what you pay for. Fortunately, at Gold Star, you often get much more. This just didn't turn out to be the night.
