About Us

 

Our Approach

LAMet productions focuses on the magnificence of the human voice,

presented in intimate settings where no one sits further from the performer than a softball pitch.

LAMet’s non-profit productions of opera classics feature accomplished professional singers and musicians who devote their time and talents  so that ticket prices can fit the entertainment budgets of both opera aficionados and first-timers alike.
About Us

Our Story

Launched in 2008, The Los Angeles Metropolitan Opera is the brainchild of sopranos
Ella Lee and Linda Jackson.   Both accomplished performers, Lee with a 30-year career
in European capitals and Jackson, homegrown and locally trained, recognized that there
was a vast, underserved audience missing out on the glories of grand opera, principally
due to the prohibitive ticket prices facing today’s opera-goers, and the distances one
must often travel to large urban performance centers.   So they set out to create an
alternative.
