“Beautiful building, fabulous orchestra”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

You can't go wrong attending a concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. If you come to see Gustavo conduct or some other conductor, the hall if stunning with fabulous acoustics and the music is always thrilling. They do a lot more modern than many people like, but it is always interesting and often very moving.

“The tour is as exciting as the acoustics within”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Tour this wonderful piece of architecture made famous now by its creator Frank Ghery. The position of this masterpiece in the middle of downtown, next to The Dorothy Chandler can be visited during the day inside and at night you can walk around the exterior. WEll worth it at either time.

“What not to like”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Yes that's right, there is no bad seat in the Disney Hall. Went to see the Marriage of Figaro, presented by a team of international accomplished artists. To watch Dudamel conduct is always mesmerizing, architect Nouvel transformed the concert into a Spanish castle, the masterly contemporary interpretation of costume by Alaia (I was closed enough - with a little help from a binocular - to be able to admire his signature body sculptural construction, down to the seams and fabric texture details, perfectly done, perfectly for the roles!); and the ever professional and well praised LA Philharmonic gracefully flowed with the celebrated singers. Moments of tease, moments of melancholy....all expressed so seemingly effortless by the LA Phil. It was a three hour performance with one intermission, a total treat to myself.

“TERRIFIC”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

This is a gorgeous venue and world class philharmonic! I love classical music and they do not disappoint. The Disney Concert Hall does not have a bad seat in the house. All seats are terrific.
