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

Had a wonderful evening of opera. Bought the Premier orchestra & had front row seats, close to the middle & about 10 feet from the conductor. YAY! Unfortunately, there was only 1 caption box for the Italian translation to English @ top of the...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.

Opera at the Music Center - wow! Hope that Goldstar can get more tickets in the future! Wonderful event!

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

The story was a bit drawn out. The super titles didn't work during long periods of time. The ushers seated people during the performance while shining flashlights in other patrons faces. Very disappointing.

I had never seen this opera before, but I know it is considered one of the best. I was disappointed. For most of the evening I thought I was at a Rossini frothy comedy. A few of the arias were very good, but one great Puccini aria beats this...continued

The Music Director James Conlon went for a straight-up, beautiful performance and got it. The sets are minimal, the costumes unremarkable. But the singing is gorgeous. Ildebrando d'Arcangelo as Don Giovanni and Julianna di Giacomo as Donna Anna...continued
