We are so excited to finally see new photos of Mr. Waltz, without his Django Unchained beard and hair! Mr. Waltz attended the LA Opera’s Gala Premiere where he was photographed backstage speaking with Placido Domingo, Anna Gunn, James and Jennifer Conlon, and Stana Katic. The LA Opera opened their season with Placido Domingo singing the role of in Giuseppe Verdi’s The Two Foscadi. The description of the opera from the LA Opera’s website states, “The languid canals and boisterous festivals of 15th-century Venice conceal a deadly web of secret plots and vindictive rivalries. Caught up in forces beyond their control, a father and son struggle to reclaim honor in a city that knows no mercy.” Mr. Domingo stars as the head of state desperate to protect his son and himself from the enemies who surround them. James Conlon is the director of the opera. Mr. Waltz is known as a fan of opera, and we are delighted to see him in attendance, taking a break from filming and relaxing doing the things he enjoys!
