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.

The weather was light rain, but mild. I wore a sweater, dress shirt & tie with dress pants and shoes. Saw other people dressed casual and some really dressy. Broad selection.

I really enjoyed the show! Costumes, singing, music, and viewing was all brilliant!! Lucrezia's voice as well as the lead player's voices were strong and vibrant. Some of the secondary players could have projected a bit more.

Wonderful performance. Good seats for the price. An opera lover's opera. The lead singer, Sondra Radvanovsky (who alternated with Renee Fleming) was marvelous, as were all the leads. She brought down the house.

Excellent production. Cast (without R. Flemming) was still outstanding. Seats were as promised. Without Goldstar I wouldn't be seeing as many operas as I do.
