  • This location is shown only to members

The musical comedy (operetta) Cloth Peddler was composed and staged by the founder of Azerbaijani opera and classical music Uzeyir Hajibeyli in 1913. This musical comedy with amazing music and breathtaking plot is considered to be the first of its kind in the entire Muslim world. Over the last 100 years, the operetta has been successfully performed in a plethora of languages in over 60 countries of the world, including in Austria, France, China, Greece, India, Russia, Turkey, etc. The musical was performed 300 times in China alone. Its greatly acclaimed 1945 film version was dubbed into 86 languages and shown in 136 countries. It is the first time that this unique musical comedy will be performed at such a scale in the English-speaking world in general, and in the U.S. in particular. Produced by award-winning producer Michael Schnack, the musical comedy will be performed by outstanding opera singers at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, one of the premier opera houses of the world. An orchestra of exquisite musicians will play the music.

    Hey Dave, I was in line with the rest of the members, when you selected a woman with her companion to lead us in to the best area in the Pavilion, but it was announced that anyone who had a printout ticket needed to go to another line and get a hard ticket! Me and a few others got in a long line, and lost the group. Ended up in the balcony section.

    September 6, 2013

  • LAD

    When I clicked the Eventbrite link, there was an announcement that hard copy tickets via mail were necessary for admission. It's obviously too late for mailed tix, though. Any thoughts? Should I just give it a pass? Or am I misreading? Thanks...

    September 6, 2013

    • LAD

      I'm just going to pass this time, but thanks...

    Any detailed info where in the pavilion the group will meet. Will there be a meetup sign. We are coming from Riverside and have attended other events but were not able to find the group.

  • Sinda

    why is this listed as a few concert with the meetups, if I need to order tickets at Eventbrit?

    September 2, 2013

    • ***MsA***

      Those of us that requested tickets last month received hard copy tickets via postal service. If you requested last week or this week, they weren't mailing tickets. Thus you must print. Early birds did not have this as an option.

      September 4, 2013

    • Amy

      I received mine both ways....online and hard copy
