We’ve received this disturbing report from Greg von Notias. Werte you there? did you see anything? There’s no mention of it in local media.
I was at a performance last night at Los Angeles Opera, at about 20 minutes into the opera a schizophrenic young man, started having a freak out. He started to climb over the rows of people, at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. When I noticed what was going on, he was stepping into my row. There was a empty seat next to me, and he opted to get over right there. I had no idea what to think about this, when I saw him, he was wearing black sunglasses, that is in the darkened theater, no expression on his face. As he approached me, I stood up, to then receive a blow on my left cheek, bottom mandable. It chipped a part of one of my teeth.
I ran out immediately to tell the ushers to call the police, they are there at every performance, but he got out, and made it into the plaza where he attacked 3 other people.
A lady was taken to the hospital that he smashed in the face outside in the plaza. I tell you, it was the oddest night I have had yet at an opera.
UPDATE: Here‘s what happened next.
