From blood-thirsty Scottish Lords to power-thirsty drug lords, Long Beach Opera has got your season prep covered! We’ve got a motley movie lineup that compliments each one of our boundary-pushing opera productions. Bring your cinephile friends and share a film experience that will be just as unexpected as our borderline season!
Gabriela Ortiz’s opera Camelia la Texana: Only the Truth is a docu-opera about a dangerous smuggling operation from Mexico to Los Angeles.
Prepare yourself for that journey with a wider look at the seedy network of drug traffickers and the officers trying to stop them. Steven Soderbergh’s Academy Award winning film, Traffic, provides a panorama of characters from both sides of the border, creating three vignettes that follow the dealings of king-pins, crooked cops, users, and dealers.
We have the refreshments ready – you just have to sit back, relax, and immerse yourself! Tickets are sold at the door; $10 for the movie, pre-movie lecture with Andreas Mitisek and the refreshments- mimosas and coffee! Free parking is available behind the venue. All-ages welcome! Concessions will be open.
