The weather was cool. I wore casual dressy but some were in fur and bling.

There are a couple of venues at the Music Center, so it might get a little confusing if you've never been. There are people around to ask to make sure you're headed in the right direction. The elevators inside the opera house are slow. We sat pretty high up in the balcony. The view was still good, considering.

I absolutely loved The Magic Flute! The staging, sets, and costumes were wonderful. Our seats were fantastic, and we just had a great time. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! I highly recommend this opera even if you are a marginal opera...continued

It was a beautiful and imaginative production. In addition to the costumes and scenary, the voices were brilliant. As a typically non-opera goer, this production may change my current habits.

Quotes & Highlights

“The LA Opera production is a lavish cartoon world…and the animals designer Gerald Scarfe creates are the most bewitching this side of Broadway’s The Lion King.” —Los Angeles Times

Description

LA Opera’s celebrated original production returns, this time under the direction of James Conlon. Legendary English visual artist, satirist, and cartoonist Gerald Scarfe designed the fantastic sets and eyecatching costumes for this Peter Hall production. The Magic Flute is both a fanciful fairy tale and an allegory hinting at deeper mysteries. This ever-popular work has enchanted young and old alike for over two centuries.
