Saturdays @ 1PM

In just a quarter-century of existence, LA Opera has become, under the leadership of General Director Plácido Domingo, the fourth largest opera company in the United States. Conductor and Music Director James Conlon has developed a vast symphonic, operatic and choral repertoire and has established enduring relationships with the world's most prestigious symphony orchestras and opera houses. Through worldwide touring to North and South America, Asia, and Europe, an extensive discography, frequent television appearances and guest speaking engagements, he has become one of today's most recognized conductors.
