Bravos and Bows on a 'Grand' Scale

Plácido Domingo and Nino Machaidze
The Center presented LA Opera in a concert performance of Jules Massenet’s Thaïs on May 27. This is the third time the Center has brought the LA Opera cast, chorus and orchestra to the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall to perform one of the company’s works being presented in fully-staged productions at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. The cast starred the legendary Plácido Domingo as Athanaël and Nino Machaidze in the title role.

Final bows and standing ovation.

A number of Center guests applauded and welcomed the cast at a party held in the concert hall Donor Lounge.
