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.

The website makes it seem as though there are quite a few food options on site but when we went on Thursday evening it seemed that evening was closed or outrageously expensive. We ended up walking a significant distance to get dinner. Come prepared, especially with kids.

Park in the Music Center lot. It’s efficient, staff attentive, and above all else, affordable!

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.

Public transportation ( metro Red line) is very reliable ( the train comes every 10 minutes), hustle free and cheap.

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.
