Our poster from ~S(A remote LA province)~T States Los Angeles has:
~Squite a few events for a cultural wasteland~T
It is somewhat telling, that the poster only lists what  the current
administration of Los Angeles Opera as producers say they are offering
as cultural events of an Operatic nature in the ~Swasteland~T. Like
praising democracy and listing the accomplishments of an inept dictator.

The current administration of Los Angeles Opera has yet to deliver a
season as announced.
The current administration of Los Angeles Opera has knowingly sold
tickets to events they could not produce.  The current administration of
Los Angeles Opera has hired the wife of the general director, several
times, though she has yet to be proven worthy  ~VNepotism?

Yes there is Opera in Los Angeles. But with a reviewer for the (defacto)
only news paper in town trashing Pulitzer winning compositions (a prize
his predecessor did not take so lightly) and a current administration of
Los Angeles Opera that uses dishonesty and ignorance as a means of
balancing the budget one has to look hard to find it. But how can they
see with a fading star stuck in there eyes and the current
administration of Los Angeles Opera must be counting on it staying stuck
in the public eyes (sty?) since said fading star was  not promoted to
the constellation of Big Apple.

Saw a very good student production of Agrippina at USC.  A Falstaff with
some very promising young singers at Repertory Opera Company.  Goyescas
by the Lyric Opera of Los Angeles.
Its not all at the Music Center.  It never has been.

How could we notice the ~Qsideways facial glyph used in e-mail to
indicate an emotion or attitude, as to indicate intended humor~R
(emoticon) with the blinding glare of the silver foot in your mouth?*

*Someone should write an Opera about  Ann Richards--motercycle and all!
