Classical Pick of the Week: Turandot
If you want to stay as far away from the 405 as possible, Dudamel is conducting Puccini's Turandot next Sunday at the Hollywood Bowl (the video is Pavarotti performing the iconic "Nessun dorma" from Turandot with Zubin Mehta and the NY Phil).
Joining Dudamel in this production are Christine Brewer, the Los Angeles Master Chorale, and Los Angeles Children's Choir. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and unless you're planning to walk from home, make sure you have your route planned ahead of time.
If you can't get to the Bowl on Sunday, Lang Lang comes to the Bowl with Dudamel in a performance of Prokofiev's Piano Concerto no. 3 in C Minor. Those performances are on Tuesday and Thursday.
