ARIA is LA Opera's group for young professionals with an interest in opera. An exciting mix of people—some very familiar with opera and others just getting their feet wet—ARIA is a great way to introduce yourself to the magnificent world of opera and make friends with fellow arts enthusiasts. Through elegant, fun ARIA Nights at the Opera, you'll first experience a world-class performance at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Join us for cocktails at intermission in our ARIA reception located on the Loge level. Immediately following the evening’s performance, join us for an exclusive After-Party with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at one of Downtown LA’s best restaurants, plus exciting raffle prizes. Often the artists you will have just seen on stage will make their way to the post-opera festivities.
