NORWALK – The Norwalk Senior Center is organizing a trip for residents 50 and older to see “The Tales of Hoffman” at the L.A. Opera next month.
The Tales of Hoffman, by Jacques Offenbach, recounts the stories of the fascinating women who captured Hoffmann’s heart – wind-up doll Olympia, conniving Giulietta, fragile Antonia and elusive Stella.
Hoffmann’s doomed pursuit of romance, foiled by sinister figures of darkness at every turn, ultimately lead him to a poet’s artistic salvation. Plácido Domingo, general director of the L.A. Opera, will conduct Offenbach’s score at the historic Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
Seniors 50 years or older are welcome to attend this performance on Thursday, March 30.
Attendees depart from the Norwalk Arts & Sports Complex parking lot, located at 13000 Clarkdale Ave., at 5:30 p.m. and return at 11p.m. Transportation and ticket to the opera are $15 per person. Tickets sell out fast, and space is limited.
Registration for Norwalk residents (photo ID proof of residency is required) opened Feb. 15. Open registration begins on Feb. 22. For registration or more info, call the senior center at (562) 929-5580.
