Parking is a problem right now because of the Sproul Plaza construction on Bancroft. Arrive early to find lots or street partking. Access to Zellerbach Hall has changed: have to go in by Haas Pavilion or from above the plaza.

Amazing all around. Very well paced with excellent transitions between acts. They were all spectacular. There were a few re-dos yet these are humans performing very difficult tasks. The music was great too. Balcony seats are wonderful esp....continued
