Thanks to Los Angeles County's support of an annual simulcast in a different supervisorial district each season, Carmen will be the first Opera in the Park simulcast at Exposition Park, located in the Second District. 'I am pleased to bring to the Second Supervisorial District a world-class opera performance in the perfect Southern California outdoor setting for families to enjoy,' said Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chairman Mark Ridley-Thomas. 'Expo Park is where arts, sports, science, history and education all come together, so the LA Opera will be right at home.'
