Kendall's is too expensive, but the nearby Colburn School has a charming cafeteria-cafe.

Beautiful! The dancing, orchestra, chorus, and opera soloists blended into a beautifully synergistic whole to create an artistically amazing experience.

Our Goldstar seats were front row center! Needless to say, we were very pleased.

An outstanding evening. The chorus and orchestra provided beautiful music from Handel. The Mark Morris Dance Company made the music visible with great beauty and wit. We loved it.
