There is no cost to attend. About Los Angeles’s Little Italy: While Los Angeles possesses the nation’s fifth-largest Italian population today, little is known about its Italian history, which has been examined by only a handful of authors over the past 70 years. In Los Angeles’s Little Italy, author Marianna Gatto chronicles the city’s vibrant Italian enclave during the 100-year period following the arrival of the first Italian pioneer in 1827. The extensively researched text includes dozens of never-before published photographs and eyewitness testimony of the early Italian community.

GLORY OF CHRISTMAS at Crystal Cathedral

By Angela Rocco DeCarlo Visitors from around the world plan holiday travel with Orange County, Southern California in mind.

There is still time to enjoy “Glory,” as performances continue through January 3, 2010.  Audiences return year after year, and this season, on the show's 29th anniversary, children are still mesmerized by the spectacle of  Roman centurions on horseback, splendidly robed Wise Men on camels, and townspeople with their wealth of livestock. Mary rides on a little gray donkey to Bethlehem, with Joseph at her side, where a sympathetic innkeeper finds a place for them. The theme parks make merry, but it is the unique “Glory” nativity full-scale musical production which tells the story of Christmas. It is a simple story. Yet, this well-produced little “opera,” with over 150 performers, and 350 volunteers working in various capacities, brings the nativity alive through dance, singing and recorded music by the London Symphony Orchestra, complimented by the Crystal Cathedral’s world-renowned pipe organ.  There are six horses, ...
