It was a wonderful performance. We were disappointed because the costuming for the performers was not as elaborate as we expected the we have seen over time on posters and ads from other venue's.

First time at the Opera - very impressed with the facility and the entire experience of light lunch, pre-opera lecture and performance. The performance is very powerful. The seat was very good.
