The Music Center – Enjoy the arts!

Opera, theater, music, dance – The Music Center encompasses it all. Also known as the Performing Arts Center of LA county, it is composed of eleven venues. Four of the main theaters are the: Ahmanson Theatre, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Mark Taper Forum, and Walt Disney Concert Hall. The four resident companies include: Center Theatre Group, LA Master Chorale, LA Opera, and the LA Phil.

Plácido Domingo, Ian McKellen, Elaine Stritch, and Liza Minnelli are just some of the world’s top talents who have performed at The Music Center. My favorite live theater performance last year was “The Art of Falling,” a spectacular dance and improv collaboration by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and The Second City that played at the Ahmanson Theater.

Check out The Music Center website to discover what shows are playing. The Music Center often hosts free, outdoor, family friendly activities. Adults can experience their new evening event, Sleepless: The Music Center After Hours (23:30 – 03:00). The next one takes place November 11th. Tickets are $ 20 in advance and $ 30 at the door.

It’s also nice to enjoy the ambiance of the Music Center Plaza (see The Dance Door) before or after your show, so take that into account when planning.

Parking is typically $ 9, but it’s also an easy location to reach by Metro (and you can check out Union Station).
