There is dining within the opera house, but only if you have a ticket for the performance. I wish i'd had known there was that possibility. Instead we ate in the suburbs and constantly watched the clock and traffic reports worrying about being late. Dining in would have been much more relaxing.

The lot below chase was very accomodating, and reasonably priced, but there were multiple issues with the elevators on our way back to the car. For those with special needs, it might be wiser to valet.

What a great way to see opera! This package deal is the best! It certainly beats buying single tickets.

The Lyric Opera is a beautiful space, and while our seats were in the highest part of the highest balcony, I enjoyed every bit of the experience.
