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

A candle flickers out on Christmas Eve, tentative hands meet in the dark and a rapturous duet soars under the moonlight. It's time to fall in love once again with La Boheme.
Follow the tale of six young Parisians who live an exuberant bohemian existence, surviving on love and laughter. Los Angeles Opera's sumptuous Herbert Ross production, resplendent in cinematic romance, returns just in time for the holidays with a dynamic young cast that includes Ana Maria Martinez (11/20, 24, 28, 12/2, 5, 8, 11, 19) and Angela Gheorghiu (12/10, 14, 17) sharing the role of Mimi and Marco Berti (11/20, 24, 28, 12/2, 5, 8, 11, 19) and Roberto Alagna (12/10, 14, 17) sharing the role of Rodolfo.
One of opera's all-time crowd-pleasers, La Boheme is a masterpiece of riveting theater and achingly beautiful music.
