Light refreshments will be served as you enjoy your favorite holiday songs and American Songbook favorites.  The concert will be broadcast throughout the center, allowing the entire City of Hope community to enjoy the music of the holidays. Our City of Hope holiday concerts are a heartfelt tradition which inspired us to travel across LA County bringing holiday music to area hospitals and senior homes as we spread the holiday cheer to those most in need.

More great reviews for Florencia en el Amazonas

Florencia en el Amazonas

At the core of Florencia en el Amazonas are three simultaneous love stories – the young love of Rosalba and Arcadio, the possibility of love rekindled for mid-life lovers Paula and Alvaro, and most importantly, transformative love embodied by Florencia whose plaintive search for her long lost love, Cristobal, sets the scene for this magical voyage in the butterfly-filled Amazon. The lush and romantic music reminiscent of Puccini and masterfully interpreted by Grant Gershon and the LA Opera Orchestra continues to get rave reviews from audiences and press alike.

"...the outstanding conducting of Grant Gershon… unraveled new layers of wonder in Catán's orchestration...Thanks to the LA Opera Orchestra, this ol’ man Amazon really rolls along!” Los Angeles Times

Conductor Grant Gershon “deftly harnesses the talented orchestra to deliver the delicate subtleties of the score, including teasing, atmospheric woodwinds, native Latin American percussion, and triumphant French horns.” Frontiers Magazine

"A modern opera with mass appeal!" LA Daily News

“Beautiful music, a touching story, and a fabulous venue make Florencia en el Amazonas a compelling reason to plan a night at LA Opera.” AXS Entertainment Arts

You only have four more chances to see one of the most successful contemporary operas of modern times before it sails on to the next port, December 10, 14, 18, and 20.
