The majestic stainless steel building was finished in 2003. The initial impulse for building it came in 1987, when the widow of Walt Disney – Lillian Disney – donated fifty million dollars to Los Angeles for a construction of a performance venue.
It is a very popular piece of architecture, so popular that one episode of the famous show The Simpsons was dedicated to it. In the episode Frank Gehry (who designed the Walt Disney Concert Hall) designs an opera house for Springfield. Frank Gehry voiced his character in the show himself.
You can either visit the Hall as a viewer of some of the shows performed there or you can take part in one of the three tours offered by the Concert Hall.
