The voices were mostly very good, the costumes and sets were totally Amateurish. Not what I would expect from the LA Opera.
All and all unless you have nothing better to do, skip this one.
But, our seats were excellent, 4th row center, couldn't...continued

Wonderful opera. The production is very nice and enjoyable. The singers are very good and their acting is good too.
I recommend going but do not expect anything sensational.

The minimal staging and the weak sound projection was a problem. This opera is not one of my favorites anyway, but this production was particularly annoying. The casting was off as well.

Opera was terrific but disappointed with the seats. Normally, Goldstar offers incredible seating but this time it was a fail... could not see the stage and had to move to open seats further back...

It was a wonderful production. Very traditional, which I prefer. The information in the program about the character development was very enriching as well. A thoroughly ejoyable evening.

It was a good Opera, a bit long. Surprised of the background it was real basic. Even when people invited to Don Giovanni''s home they all sat on the floor. Usually Opra's are very extravagant with stage presents.
The show was good it had its...continued

My rating is for the singing! The sets were very sparse, and did detract a little from the overall performance, in my opinion. Would go again, however!!!!!

I highly recommend this opera for all to see. I certainly understand why this esteemed opera is one of the top 10 German-Italian operas. Conlon was the conductor for the evening. He is truly gifted in his craft. Such fluidity in the notes. The...continued

This was a wonderful experience. The opera stars had terrific voices and the story was easy to follow. I was disappointed in the stage scenery, feeling it could have been more elaborate.
