Music is one of the most restorative forces in the world, and it’s coming your way. LA Opera launched their production of Tannhäuser this week, and there are beautiful things to come from Jouyssance and Pacific Opera Project (stay tuned!). Start filling up your own ticket calendar now, as soon it will be difficult to choose…

It’s getting good. (Make sure YOUR event is on the Lister calendar!)
