 Plácido Domingo and James Conlon join forces for a spectacular Verdi masterpiece.

With rich orchestrations, thundering choruses and an endless flow of rapturous melodies, one of Verdi’s grandest and greatest works is an enthralling tale of morality and mortality. After losing his fiancée to his father, the king of Spain, the broken-hearted Don Carlo realigns his sympathies and turns against the Spanish Inquisition, knowing full well that his vow to fight for liberty might ultimately cost him his life. As Carlo, superstar Ramón Vargas returns to Los Angeles for the first time in nearly two decades, with Plácido Domingo as his heroic best friend.

In Italian with projected English translations.

Los Angeles Central Library Tour &

Maguire Gardens

Monday

September 24, 2018            

10:30 AM – 1:00/1:30 PM

COST:      $5.00 per family PLACE:

  • 630 W. 5th Street
  • Los Angeles, CA 90071
  • It is on the corner of Grand & Flower in downtown Los Angeles

Registration Deadline: (or until full)  Come downtown and visit the Los Angeles Public Library’s historic Central Library. Enjoy the art and architecture of the 1926 Goodhue Building with its distinctive sphinxes and rooftop pyramid.  Wander through the 1993 Tom Bradley Wing, designed by architect Norman Pfeiffer, and gaze at the 8-story atrium with its whimsical chandeliers. Learn about the library’s comprehensive collections. We will also see the Maguire Gardens. If you would like a LA Library card, please pre-register using the link below and return it to the library 1 week prior to the field trip. This will allow for a smoother process.  http://www.lapl.org/sites/default/files/media/pdf/about/Library_Card_App.pdf We will be taking the Gold Line from the Monrovia Station ($3 to park) (I will be leaving on the 9:24 train) to Union Station and connecting with the Blue Line to Pershing Square and walking approx. 2 blocks to the library. At the end of the tour you may explore downtown, there is The Last Bookstore (453 S Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90013), which is really fun to see, or after returning to Union Station you may visit Olvera Street and/or have lunch at Phillipe known for their French dip sandwiches (1001 N Alameda St, Los Angeles, CA 90012). If you are taking the Gold Line be sure to be at the Train Station (On Myrtle Ave.) no later than 8:50 AM to give you time to purchase the TAP Card.  You will need to purchase one card per passenger.  Not only is it much less expensive to get to LA on the Gold LIne but it will be a much shorter commute and it is a lot of FUN.  You can use cash or credit cards at the ticket machine. You can also save time by buying online at  taptogo.net or by phone at 1.866.TAPTOGO.  Passes loaded this way must be purchased at least 48 hours (two days) in advance of use. When buying online or by phone, you can also take advantage of TAP’s Autoload feature, which automatically loads your 30-Day pass or stored value.  You must do this at least 48 hours in advance, I would suggest at least a week in advance. Both of these places are within 2 blocks of Union Station. Here are the links to the train schedules.
