On Monday, the LA Opera is holding a press conference to announce what it says will be "the largest cultural event to come to Los Angeles since the 1984 Olympics." Elsewhere it's referred to as "a major citywide cultural event," and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is slated to be on hand for the announcement with representatives from the Opera and fifty Southern California cultural and educational institutions.

So what it is?

That's the part that will only be known Monday, but the press hints that the event will occur in conjunction with the LA Opera's presentation of the four-opera Ring Cycle. Back in 2006 the company announced its plans to put on the ambitious set of performances. They kick off in March with "Das Rheingold."

We'll have more details Monday, but in the meantime feel free to engage in operatic speculation.
