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.

The Washington National Opera is a national treasure. We have world-class singers and quality productions right here in DC. Metropolitan - move over! Macbeth is one of my favorite operas and TWNO did it up proud. Then Goldstar makes it affordable...continued

Not exactly as I expected, they used these screen to project stylized images and the costumes were very monochromatic. The witches and the new perspective were worth it if you are a Shakespeare fan. Music/singing was beautiful.

Description

Libretto by Francesca Maria Piave

Sung in Italian with English supertitles

You know the story. Well, Verdi’s music matches its chilling power. And when Lady Macbeth risks everything—vocally and emotionally—in her great sleepwalking scene, it’s clear that Shakespeare and Verdi were made for each other.

Part of the 2007 citywide Shakespeare in Washington festival.
