I am unfamiliar with public transit. Parking is $9.00, but it is convenient.

The weather was warm but a little breezy. I wore casual dressy clothes and a shawl. Be comfortable, but look nice..

Beethoven's 8th was wonderful and enjoyable. Falla was very exciting with the larger orchestra and choir. Loved the flamenco guitar, singer and dancer especially. The Opera stars were also very good although the words are ridiculously soap...continued

Description

Life and death, light and dark: Spanish conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos pairs Beethoven’s ebullient Eighth Symphony with Falla’s gritty tale of a woman wronged. Light on its feet, the Eighth is full of abstract dance gestures, while Falla drew on Spanish traditional song and dance for his two-act opera.
