Review from Dan Kennedy

The venue is beautiful. The DCP is one of the best in LA. The seats were within good visual distance and dead center orchestra. I have been going to LA Opera for many years and you can't beat Goldstar for what they provide. I will do it again.

Review from Julie Mayfield

It was a minimilistic opera meaning there were costumes but not elaborate sets. My husband LOVED it. I enjoyed it since the set design was very creative to be so minimilistic, but I prefere operas with elaborate sets and costumes.

Review from Chiedu Egbuniwe

Description

Don Juan’s back and LA Opera’s got him! The sexy and sensual Erwin Schrott returns as opera’s greatest Lothario in the ravishing production that won LA Opera kudos in 2003. The Los Angeles Times commented: “The eye is startled, delighted, and sometimes enlightened by constant visual stimulation.”

Mozart’s great comic drama not only catalogs the Don’s conquests (2,065 women, to be exact), but also deftly unfolds an intriguing series of escalating calamities that ensue as those he seduced and abandoned seek their revenge against him. And when the Don disdainfully invites a vengeful ghost to dinner, all hell breaks loose.
