For more than six years, LA Opera has visited Crowell Public Library with its Opera Talk series where volunteer community educators present fascinating facts and musical excerpts from the operas that are playing downtown at the Music Center. LA Opera's 30th Anniversary Season will open in September with the double bill of Puccini's comedic masterpiece Gianni Schicchi and Leoncavallo's thrilling drama Pagliacci.
