' YoO MEMT i , V3r?Ci tlf I n the past few years Downtown Los Angeles has received a lot of attention for its summer cultural lineup. The arts and entertainment calendar, highlighted by a batch of attention-generating al fresco concert series, have attracted people from all across the region. We already know how good this is for Downtown, that those who come to the community for an event often arrive early for dinner or stay late for drinks at a bar. Sometimes they do both. The fall cultural lineup does not quite compare in scope to what happens from June through September, but the season is steadily becoming more active. Los Angeles Downtown News last week detailed 40 prominent concerts, exhibits, plays and more taking place between now and December. The list could have easily been three times as long.

October 8, 2012 Downtown News 7 Big Battle in a Battered Ninth A Cheat Sheet to the Candidates Running for City Council in the Carved-up District by Jon Regardie executive editor W hen it comes to the 2013 mayor’s race, the principal question at this point is whether mall master Rick Caruso will enter and go nuclear on his opponents. In the city attorney’s campaign, some are wondering if incumbent Carmen Trutanich will pull off the impossible and miss his second consecutive runoff, following his disastrous third place finish in the June district attorney election. The competition for the Ninth District council seat is generating less attention than the citywide contests, but it could end up being among the most interesting races in Los Angeles. A whopping 14 people have filed papers to raise money for the post being vacated by a termed-out Jan Perry, and at least a half dozen of them have the potential to be factors when voters head to the polls next March. If no one garners more th...

Then, the winning didn’t stop. Kemp was well on his way to another MVPtype campaign. The starters were solid and the bullpen unhittable. contributing writer S o what do we make of the 2012 Dodgers season? For starters, it was one of the craziest rides in club history. Before the season I predicted they would go 83-79 — they finished 86-76. But at no point this season were the Dodgers just average. On or off the field. On May 1, the sun burst through the clouds. Birds chirped a more joyous tune. The sodas at Dodger Stadium tasted even sweeter. For that was the day the Dodgers were officially released from the hell that was McCourt ownership. Coming off a 2011 season that saw Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw dominate, most predicted the ...

Joshua Bloom is a fine Masetto and Ievgen Orlov delivers an especially strong Commendatore, the stone statue who comes to life to threaten the Don. Bass David Bizic milks the role of Leporello, the Don’s foolish servant, in a truly loving and comic way. He gets the most out of his famous recitation of the Don’s 2,065 conquests, and the scene in which he impersonates the Don to help seduce Donna Elvira is a highlight of the show. The part of Don Ottavio is both a challenge and an opportunity for any tenor. Dramatically, the role is a weak one: Ottavio is the beleaguered lover of Donna Anna, who cannot seem to rouse himself to defend her from Don Giovanni. While he could be a comic figure, Mozart gives him plenty of solo time and some of the best music in the opera. It’s a challenge, and on opening night Andrej Dunaev d...
