Love this place. Huge stage and huge entrance. Nice fountain in the front. Everyone was nicely dressed it was a nice night! I am looking for more plays so we can go again.
I've lived in LA all my life and never been to an opera until this past Tuesday night. Carmen was presented and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion I decided that after a stressful the best thing to do is to enjoy a night at the theater.
