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.

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!

Food and drinks purchased here go toward the opera society to bring programs and a number of other reasons. It is very close to Little Tokyo and Olvera Street plenty of fare in either. If you are feeling adventurous make the trip to King Taco on third street, yes its in a questionable area but there are generally always police at that location. You decide if it is worth the tacos.

Trafficc is really bad through the 5 fwy. I came in from south orange county and it took 2.5 hours to get to the front door and only 1 minute to hand the valet my key. The valet is great for handicap accessibility and only $9. Highly recommend.

Please dress up at least a little for the opera. Some people looked like they came straight from a home repair job. Too bad.

Since Music Center Plaza is closed, they opened a restaurant on 5th floor of Chandler Pavilion--Impressario. Not cheap, but good food and fabulous view. Recommended.

Arrive at least l/2 hr. early as it gets very crowded to park and it takes awhile to find parking and then walk and take escalators up several floors.

Park at the Music Center, as there really is no close parking like there used to be. It was $10.00. Worth it for the convenience and safety.
