Wonderful music

Beautifully done and I've been told that the acoustics is better then the Vienna Opera House. I don't think there's a bad seat in the house.

I didn't get to go inside as it was closed when I visited, but I was impressed with the look and design of the outside of the building. Even in the pouring rain, it was impressive. Will make sure that on my next trip to LA that I get to go inside.

Its an absolute gem of architecture and engineering, but the public garden was the real treat, an oasis in the middle of the busy city!

A recent concert of Ravel conducted by Dudamel was our excuse to buy tickets for the Walt Disney Hall. Although we are not Ravel fanatics, we wanted to see Gustavo conduct and we wanted to visit this concert hall "in action". Five star checks for both. The building is marvellous, and the acoustics are amazing -- La Scala sounds no... More

It was said that this Hall is the best in the world - it is, believe me, even in compare with Albert Hall, Moscow concert halls, even opera houses in Wienna and Milano.

Love Gustavo and his repertoire. Very professional orchestra. Greate hall, very warm and inviting. Heard rumors that acoustics are not the best, but love it anyway. Prices are connected to the quality so no complaints here. Love sits behind the orchestra. Very educational.

Excellent experience! The sound system is exceptional and acoustics are incredible. It is beautiful and out. The seats are comfortable for the most part but I thought the fact that I had the additional "cushion" of a sweater helped, as the performance I attended was

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
