Making Music in Los Angeles

Catherine Parsons Smith

University of California Press

This chapter discusses the new opera companies that arrived in Los Angeles in 1925, describing the opera scene in 1925, the depth of the presence of opera, and the changes which occurred since the late nineteenth century. It shows that opera was no longer an elite form of entertainment, due to the return of low-budget opera in different formats and for different audiences. The chapter also states that the old competitors were still present in 1925, namely L.E. Behymer.

Keywords:   opera companies, presence of opera, low-budget opera, L.E. Behymer
