It was a little disconcerting that the doors didn't open up until about 5 minutes before the show, but everyone got time to find their seats and take in the ambiance without feeling rushed. Ushers were excellent.

Ate at the KC Cafe on the Terrace Level. Reasonable prices, great food, and no waiting. Ideal for having a civilized meal before the show.

Very good concert. I especially enjoyed the Boito Mefistofele Prologue in Heaven. The chorus was excellent and the baritone had a wonderfully rich voice with excellent tone.

Description

In this superb season finale, the Choral Arts Society of Washington will begin with “Papa” Haydn’s sunny welcome to Spring from his oratorio The Seasons. They then move to the magnificent world of grand opera, performing works from Boito’s Mefistofele, Verdi’s La Traviata, Gounod’s Faust, and more. This exciting array of operatic excerpts, both familiar and not so familiar, will have every listener leaving the hall with a favorite tune on his or her lips.
