About Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Part of the Los Angeles Music Center alongside the Ahmanson Theater, the Mark Taper Forum and Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion’s grand five-story performance space has been the site of countless luminaries from the worlds of music, theater, opera and dance. Built in 1964, the auditorium still retains much of its “Mad Men”-era charm, its elegant chandeliers, wide curving stairways and glitzy décor harkening back to an older, grander L.A. Home to the Academy Awards ceremony for much of the ‘70s and ’80s (and as recently as 1999), the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion is now the permanent residence of the Los Angeles Opera.



All attendees must have a ticket, regardless of age. There is no late seating. Seat assignments will be made by the box office in advance, and you will be assigned within the section you purchased. Seat assignments are final and you will not be allowed to upgrade seats on-site. The main supertitle screen above the proscenium is fully visible from the rear loge. It is not, however, visible from most of the seats in the orchestra ring section because of the overhang of the founders circle (1st balcony). There are two additional supertitle screens (one audience right and one audience left) underneath the overhang to accommodate orchestra ring patrons. Orchestra ring seats are not obstructed. The supertitle screens are simply in a different location. For event information please contact 213-972-8001.

Get there at least 15 minutes before start time. It goes completely dark once it starts and its difficult to find your seats. Parking is $9 Please, if you buy snacks, don't get super crunchy ones. It's distracting.

The weather was Balmy. I wore a floor length vintage polyester evening dress with spaghetti straps. It's the ballet, people. Dress up!.

It was a festive occasion, and most were dressed appropriately. Men especially, however, should stop dressing as if they were going out to a sporting event. How about trying to look a little sharper, dress for the occasion.

Bring binoculars! From our seats we missed out on the faces and make-up and couldn't see details of the costumes.

Au Lac at 1st and Hope has incredible Vietnamese-influenced vegan food. I'm not vegan -- I'm an omnivore -- but I love this place's food and elegant ambience.

The weather was Over cast. I wore After 6 dress. A little black dress will fare well. Some of the older crowd will wear practically their chandeliers, in todays day and age its unnecessary. The men should wear a jacket for respect to this theater do not wear jeans (It's cheap) if you spend $100.00 on the seats you should at least look like it. Bring opera glasses: fold-able cheap ones will do. No one can see those in the dark, and you will see more of the show..
