On Friday, LA Opera kicks off a months-long series of productions featuring Figaro, the comedic character popularized in 18th-century France. But with its first opera, the company takes on a very modern issue: illegal immigration in Los Angeles.
All of the defendants worked at Long Beach-based Atlantic Health Services (formerly Atlantic Recovery Services or ARS). In many cases, services were not provided or were provided to students without substance abuse problems, prosecutors say.
The new pricing comes as the Los Angeles Opera celebrates its 30th anniversary, kicking off the season with a double bill revival production of "Gianni Schicchi," directed by Woody Allen, and "Pagliacci."
