That "L" in "L.A."? It's for "Lucky".
The L.A. Times reports:
Conductor James Conlon will be staying on as music director of the Los Angeles Opera at least through the end of the 2012-13 season, the company said Monday. His contract was set to expire at the end of the current 2010-11 season. Conlon joined L.A. Opera in fall 2006, succeeding conductor Kent Nagano.
Mad props to L.A. Opera and with Maestro Conlon -- who in March was interviewed by Opera Chic.
