Final performance May 19, don't miss your last chance to see Plácido Domingo this season.
It has a love triangle, a bullfighter, a mountain dwelling bandit, and a beautiful woman (of course). El Gato Montés ("The Wildcat") weaves a quintessentially Spanish tale with all the passion, beautiful music, and choreography you'd expect. Never heard of it? You're in for a treat because it's considered one of the greatest masterpieces of the Spanish lyrical theater, and unlike Carmen, it's actually sung in Spanish. This new-to-LA production comes straight from Madrid. Best of all, Plácido Domingo stars as the "Wildcat" himself, a rogue who returns after many years to reclaim the woman he loves.
"Domingo roars... powerful. A striking, successful cultural hybrid.”
