About Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Dorothy Chandler Pavilion Tickets

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.

Pinot Grill from Patina is right across from Dorothy Chandler Pavillion, but it gets BUSY, so give yourself at least 2 hours before the show.

There are a couple of venues at the Music Center, so it might get a little confusing if you've never been. There are people around to ask to make sure you're headed in the right direction. The elevators inside the opera house are slow. We sat pretty high up in the balcony. The view was still good, considering.

There are snacks and drinks for purchase. There are also restaurants nearby, but they're pricey. Consider dining before you go.
