There are a couple of venues at the Music Center, so it might get a little confusing if you've never been. There are people around to ask to make sure you're headed in the right direction. The elevators inside the opera house are slow. We sat pretty high up in the balcony. The view was still good, considering.

There are snacks and drinks for purchase. There are also restaurants nearby, but they're pricey. Consider dining before you go.

Beautifully sung production, sumptuously produced as always with the L.A. Opera. I had an excellent seat for the opening night performance thanks to Goldstar!
