LOT 4 – Passion and Peril: Tosca

Enjoy four (4) Center Orchestra tickets to LA Opera’s production of Tosca on Thursday, April 27, 2017, at 7:30PM at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

A fiery prima donna, Tosca, is forced to play a role she never imagined when she becomes trapped between her allegiance to her rebel lover and the scheming of a treacherous police chief who will stop at nothing in his lust for her. The explosive conflict between these three unforgettable characters comes to a hair-raising conclusion in one of opera’s bloodiest, most intense dramas. James Conlon, conductor

LOT 5 – Seven Days in Paradise

Abandon the hustle and bustle of L.A. for a one-week stay at Casa Atardecer (“Sunset House”) in Dominical, Costa Rica. Designed by internationally-respected, award-winning architect Bernardo Flores-Sahagun, this large, modern-style home sits 100 meters up and 1,000 meters inland in a secure, gated community on a lush, jungle-covered ridge that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and features awe-inspiring, panoramic views.


The casa features expansive walls of windows that invite serene ocean breezes into the living and dining rooms and kitchen on the main floor and the luxurious, second-level master suite. The master suite also features its own wrap-around terrace. There are two large junior suites, indoor and outdoor kitchens, a sleeping room for two over the garage, and a tranquil indoor/outdoor infinity pool. The home also offers wireless internet.

Wake to the sights and sounds of howler monkeys, sloths, toucans and other indigenous birds — sometimes within feet of the Casa. In the evenings, unwind to spectacular sunsets and be lulled by the gentle sound of ocean waves in the bay.


Enjoy this extraordinary vacation home from Saturday through Saturday between May 6 and September 15, 2017, or Summer 2018; dates to be negotiated with owner. Transportation to/from/at the destination and local activity expenses not included.
