A MUSICAL ROMP..... BY OBIE YADGAR

Give Assyrians a night of music and song and we show up with our dancing shoes ready to party. It's our way, for after all, we're a musical people with a ready song on our tongue and a spring in our step. For Mesopotamian Night — Los Angeles (MN-LA), though, we can leave the shoes at the door and come in for an unforgettable musical experience.

The California's Seating In General 

The California Theater is an intimate, comfortable, and beautifully decorated hall, with 1,126 plush seats. No seat is more than 20 rows from the orchestra players or more than 20 seats from center. The theater's acoustics are excellent and the sound in the mezzanine is especially outstanding. There truly are no poor seats in this hall. Both the orchestra floor and balcony levels have seats in all four price categories.

AN ASSYRIAN MUSIC MAKER

I first heard Rev. Samuel Khangaldy’s music at the 2009 Mesopotamian Nights production. It was the overture from the oratorio Gilgamesh and it was good stuff. The overture, about 15 minutes or so long, uses long and luscious lines in the tradition of the great symphonic poems by Tchaikovsky, Smetana, Liszt and Sibelius. “Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us,” said Boris Pasternak, and the Rev. Khangaldy’s music was such a gift.
