It was unveiled in a visually stunning production at the D...

Dodgers demote Pedro Baez to Triple-A to clear spot for Caleb Ferguson

PITTSBURGH — A vocal portion of the Dodgers’ fan base finally got its wish Wednesday. The Dodgers optioned reliever Pedro Baez to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Plácido Domingo commands LA Opera’s ‘Nabucco’ stage despite gimmicks

As the line from Gypsy goes, “You gotta get a gimmick if ya wanna get a hand.” Los Angeles Opera’s production of Giuseppe Verdi’s sword and sandal epic, “Nabucco” (which plays through Nov. 19 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion), relies on so many gimmicks that I gave up counting. There are gimmicks on top of gimmicks, gimmicks inside gimmicks. There are even gimmicks on stage after the opera’s over, including an audience sing-along led by conductor James Conlon and Nabucco himself, Plácido Domingo...
