A Trip to the Moon

Walt Disney Concert Hall

111 S Grand Ave.

Los Angeles, CA 90012

March 2nd - March 3rd

8pm-10pm

Inspired by Georges Méliès’ 1902 film A Trip to the Moon, Grawemeyer-winning composer Andrew Norman’s whimsical opera tells the story of a band of bumbling astronomers as they explore the moon, try to fix their broken rocket, and interact with a mysterious race of moon people who are facing a perilous threat of their own. Teddy Abrams also conducts Gustav Holst’s perennially popular suite The Planets, which was based on the characteristics/personalities of the Roman god-named planets of astrology, rather than the solar system orbiters we know from science. The results are colorful, powerful, mysterious, soaring and thoroughly memorable. This show is for ages 6 and up.


Genghis Khan: The Exhibition

Ronald Reagan Foundation

40 Presidential Dr.

Simi Valley, CA 9306

March 1st - Aug 19th

What do pants, the pony express, cannons, paper money, skis, violins, bakhlava and “hooray!” have in common? Answer: Genghis Khan introduced them all to the West. Not Genghis the brutal barbarian of Western history books, but Genghis the great civilizer and lawmaker, whose empire brought each of these innovations to the west, including 13th Century Mongolian-style democracy. Now the most comprehensive exhibition of Genghis Khan and his treasures invades the Reagan Library, its only Southern California stop on an international tour that has drawn more than a million visitors.
