Great seats, terrific performance! The arias were just beautiful! The set was very simple, yet gorgeous! I would recommend it to others.

Except for terribly uncomfortable seating -- this is the Opera House?!? -- it was a lovely evening w/ superb entertainment. The lead voices were magnificent and the opera delightful
