The winter holidays are all about spending time with family and friends. Activities like decorating the Christmas tree, lighting the menorah and binging holiday movies pretty much sum up the season. To avoid holiday cabin fever, we’ve rounded up five events around LA that are perfect for the family.
We are now coming to the end of Hanukkah, with Christmas just around the corner. We’ve selected three holiday set operas for you to check out. Take a look below!
The first two acts of Giacomo Puccini’s timeless classic take place on Christmas Eve as six impoverished young Bohemians, surviving only on laughter and the promise of love in Belle Époque Paris, spend a memorable night on the town. Revel in the tragic romance this upcoming June, when La Boheme graces the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion stage (with the delectable Nino Machaidze making her role debut as Mimi), and fall in love with the beautiful snowy moment at the end of the third act.
Thousands of people just like you come to LA Opera each year to experience the magnificence that can only be found in opera. Through world-class staging and bold experimentation, opera has something for everyone, regardless of age, musical preferences or means.
Here are some ways you can give the gift of opera this holiday season:
LA Opera’s game-changing production of The Magic Flute returns in February 2016. Packed with stage wizardry, the beloved Mozart classic plunges audiences into an incredible fantasy world, where singers interact with hand-drawn animation straight out of the silent-era film.
Puccini’s cherished music in Madame Butterfly tells the tale of a naïve young woman who commits to a man utterly unworthy of her love. We all know where it goes from there, but you won’t want to miss this gorgeous production in April 2016.
La Boheme, a timeless classic, reveling in the cinematic romance of Paris, concludes our mainstage season of masterpieces. Fall in love again with La Bohème’s unforgettable blend of riveting theater and achingly beautiful music as we follow the tale of six impoverished young bohemians, surviving only on laughter and the promise of love.
