Mark Your Calendars
We’re presenting a free, live simulcast of Carmen at Santa Monica Pier and Exposition Park on September 23 at 7pm.
If you’re looking to experience opera under the stars, this is your chance.
Here are some things to know before attending Opera at the Beach or Opera in the Park.
1. It’s FREE.
Yes, that’s right. Both broadcasts are free. But make sure you RSVP and come early to get the best seats. The venues open at 5pm and the show starts at 7pm.
Be Prepared for a Little Chill
Bring a sweater, blankets, or someone to snuggle with. Like most Southern California days, it’ll be warm until the sun sets, and then you’ll probably want something (or someone) to keep you warm.
Bring a Chair or a Blanket to Sit On
There will be chairs for rent at the Santa Monica Pier – but they go fast. You’ll need to bring your own seating for Exposition Park.
Pack a Picnic or Plan to Pick Up Something On-Site
There are restaurants at Santa Monica Pier and you can bring things to snack on at Exposition Park.
Los Angeles magazine is hosting a Wine Terrace at the pier (purchase tickets to that here). There is no alcohol permitted at Exposition Park.LA Opera is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the greater good.
