We ate at the terrace restaurant which is always a treat. There is another self serve restaurant at the terrace level which is quite nice as well. Both are aware that you are trying to get to a show so the service is geared to making sure you get out in time.La Bohème dining • Nov 13 2014 star this tip starred

Set in post-war New York, A View from the Bridge tells the tale of Brooklyn longshoreman Eddie Carbone, whose desire for his adult niece, Catherine, leads to disaster in his community and home. Composer William Bolcom collaborated closely with Arthur Miller to set View as an opera, a partnership that resulted in a truly memorable theatrical experience. Classic opera themes of love, loyalty and betrayal meld with Bolcom’s masterful score—a veritable history of American musical culture, incorporating doo-wop, blues and American standards. The perfect opera for first-time attendees and operaphiles alike, A View from the Bridge offers a uniquely American operatic event unlike anything else you’ll see this year.
Composed by William Bolcom
Libretto by Arnold Weinstein and Arthur Miller
Production from Lyric Opera of Chicago
Sung in English with English supertitles
