For the first time since 2013, the music of Richard Wagner returns to LA Opera on October 18, 2021, with a masterpiece of 19th-century German Romantic opera, Tannhäuser. Conducted by Music Director James Conlon, the opera tells the tale of a man returning home after a long entrapment with the goddess Venus to pursue a more virtuous path, but that path of virtue may not be as straight as it seems with temptation lingering around every corner…
In addition to the in-person performances at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, LA Opera will livestream two performances (October 24 and 27) of Tannhäuser for viewers worldwide to access from the comfort of their homes via the company’s On Now digital platform. For those who attend in person, LA Opera’s new vaccination policy, along with a new, state-of-the-art air filtration system and enhanced cleaning protocols, will ensure the best and safest possible experience for audiences, artists and staff, the company’s top priority (see below).
We have partnered with our friends at LA Opera to give away (2) tickets to the latest @LAOpera performance, Tannhäuser for a Wed. 11/3 performance at 7:30pm. To enter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line “TANNHAUSER” by Tues. 10/26 at 9am. A winner will be selected by random draw. General contest rules can be found on our website.
