This Week @MusicCenterLA

One might find this to be a confusing weekend to make plans. It’s a three day weekend in celebration of our Presidents, we’ve got a Friday the 13th, and then a sentimental Valentine’s Day thrown in just to keep it all interesting. Let us help with some phenomenal programming that can accommodate all the above and more!


LA Opera continues its run of The Ghosts of Versailles, the opera within an opera, with a Sunday matinee. Have you happened to check out Los Angeles magazine’s photo essay of the production’s stunning costumes?

Center Theatre Group opened the provocative and classic drama The Price at the Mark Taper Forum this week, which runs through March 22. Alternatively Dame Edna’s Glorious Goodbye The Farewell Tour at the Ahmanson Theatre continues with more and more raving reviews of hilarity!

LA Phil presents three opportunities to see Martha Argerich Plays Schumann, including pieces by Britten, Schumann, and Strauss. Tonight, enjoy the multi-faceted jazz evening Terri Lyne Carrington’s Mosaic Project, featuring $20 tickets. And in case you missed it last Saturday, find yourself and your little ones immersed in Toyota Symphonies for Youth: Bolero: Ravel’s Dance for Orchestra this Saturday. All at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

REDCAT presents a not-to-be-missed split screen set for Mariano Pensotti: Cineastas, which conceptually weaves together life and art in this “filmic drama.” Opens tomorrow night and runs through next week, so you can still have another opportunity to catch it in case your three day weekend suddenly slips by!
