Classical Pick of the Week: All Wagner All Week Long
The Ring Festival LA has a great calendar of events for you to fill your week with Wagner (including a light show set to the music of the Ring Cycle! At the Griffith Observatory. Called the LIGHT OF THE VALKYRIES!). The beginning of the end is near, with the last set of Wagner's Ring cycle to begin this weekend with the LA Opera. It is highly recommended to watch all four operas in order (Das Rheingold, Die Walkure, Siegfried, Gotterdammerung), so if you buy single show tickets, try to watch them in order.
