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.

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.

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..

Pre order your beverage before the intermission and you will have it sooner than waiting in line. ALSO make the quickest run to the rest room during the intermission the line to the ladies room is ridiculously long. Better yet use the rest room long before the show because the intermission takes way to long!
