Classical Pick of the Week: Leftovers
You can hear Abe Laboriel in a few hours if you have nothing better to do, we highly recommend it! The LA Opera is now on hold until April 3rd, when it returns with the last of Wagner's Ring Cycle, Gotterdammerung (Twilight of the Gods). There is also a special concert with world renown tenor Jose Carreras who will perform at the Greek Theatre on June 26th. Although that's a little far off, these tickets are sure to sell out quickly and you can access them early here. This holiday presale offer also adds a 10 dollar discount and is good until the 22nd, with the code "LAOPERA".
