Symphony Closes the Summer Season with ‘Aida’ – Aug. 17

https-cdn.evbuc.comimages3369958857300837641originalTonight the Culver City Symphony will conclude the 2017 Summer Festival with one of opera’s most spectacular masterworks, Verdi’s emotion-packed Aïda. Commissioned for the opening of the Suez Canal, Verdi’s score marked a turning point in his maturity as a composer, and the emotions of love, longing, heroism, betrayal, deceit and sacrifice for love are finely and powerfully etched. Presenting a shortened version, so the impact will be more concentrated, and no doubt the beautiful Burton Chace Park along the waters of Marina del Rey will add to the experience.


Visit the orchestra website for photos of the cast and from rehearsals including from last night’s rehearsal which premiered the wonderful costumes by Alyxx Iannetta.

Once again, for the eighteenth year, we gratefully moved west from Culver City to what we feel is one of the best outdoor venues in SoCal to enjoy concerts.

A new tent graces the park. It is larger, roomier, straight lines, right angles and a flat top. To some it is Modernistic, a good thing, and to others reminiscent of a Ancient Grecian Temple (to music), also a good thing.

We, almost literally with the new tent, set up camp at Burton Chace Park
13650 Mindanao Way, Marina del Rey, California 90292

We always look forward to our collaboration with Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors, thank you Supervisor Janice Hahn for your vision and support of Classical Music. The schedule and parking information are at
