LA Opera screening in Newhall Park
Newhall Park will be one of only three locations in the country of Los Angeles to host a simulcast of the Los Angeles Opera’s performance of Giuseppe Verdi’s “Aida” on June 4 at 7:30 p.m.
The event, dubbed “Opera in the Park,” will stream real-time high-definition video and audio from the opera’s live performance at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in downtown Los Angeles, on LED screens at Newhall Park, located at 24923 Newhall Ave.
Gates to the event open at 5:30 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to show up at this time to picnic and secure a good viewing spot. Guests are also encouraged to bring their own seat as the entire event is general admission. The event and parking are free.
The performance will also be shown on screens at Santa Monica Pier (Opera at the Beach) and Pomona Fairplex (Opera at the Fairplex).
While this isn’t the first simulcast of an LA Opera performance, it’s the first time Santa Clarita will host a venue. Each location’s District Supervisor helped organize the event, with the Newhall Park location hosted by District Supervisor Kathryn Barger of LA County’s 5th District.
“Our communities in northern Los Angeles County are a vibrant hub for the arts,” Barger said. “Residents of the Fifth District will enjoy this magnificent, world-renowned opera house close to home while spending an evening outdoors with family, friends and neighbors. I am grateful that Los Angeles County is partnering with LA Opera to bring this amazing opportunity to our neighborhoods for free.
