I've seen The Lighthouse and Les Enfants Terriblest, both at Opera Parallele, and they are both terrific pieces. (The Glass is much better than the film it's based on!) Pretty great lineup (composers, directors, conductors) for the entire season.

Be there or be square for Long Beach Opera's 2021 season!
