LA OPERA - The Festival Play of Daniel

SOLD OUT LA Opera will present the medieval music drama The Festival Play of Daniel. The performances will be conducted by James Conlon, the Company's Richard Seaver Music Director. Dating from the early 13th century, The Festival Play of Daniel recounts the beloved Old Testament story of the courageous prophet Daniel. When mysterious and incomprehensible writing appears on the wall of King Belshazzar's palace, none of the king's advisors can decipher it, except for Daniel. Soon thereafter, as foretold by Daniel, King Darius defeats and kills King Belshazzar. The new king honors the prophet but this causes other counselors to become jealous of the favor shown to Daniel. The counselors trick the new king into proclaiming himself a deity and then condemning Daniel, who will worship none but the one true God. King Darius reluctantly condemns Daniel to be cast into a den of lions. Just as the lions are about to spring on the prophet, an angel appears and protects him from the jaws of the hungry animals.
TICKETS Advance tickets are required for admission and are free of charge. There will be a $1 handling fee and a four-ticket limit per order. So, technically this is a
free concert. This event will sell out.
PARKING There is some street parking. Cathedral garage is $5.
MISCELLANEOUS If you're Catholic like me and wondering if you can go to Mass prior to the Play you're out of luck: there is no regularly scheduled Saturday Mass. I'm going with my parents and future in-laws, thus NO HOST. FYI there is another performance at 4 pm.

    I just tested the link and it works fine. The event is not sold out yet. If you have problems with the link try calling LA OPERA (213)[masked]

    I tried clicking the link above to get the tickets, but I'm not able to see how it checks out. Is it already sold out?
