Classical Pick Of The Week: Bryn Terfel At Disney Hall

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

As we mentioned last week, you can still catch Lohengrin this Sunday. It's a little quiet this week thanks to Thanksgiving, but it looks like a good week for opera lovers. The LA Times just profiled opera star Bryn Terfel, and you can check him out tomorrownight in the other music center, at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The program is heavy on Schumann (we're a nostalgic bunch).

For the Wagnerites, Salonen is conducting the LA Phil and Bryn Terfel in excerpts from Die Meistersinger, Die Walkure, Lohengrin, and Tannhauser. The program is scheduled for Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 8 PM, and Sunday at 2 PM. And if you're sick of Wagner, Verdi's Rigoletto starts this Saturday at 7:30 PM.
