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 a Sicilian village, this melodramatic tale of “rustic chivalry” follows the fickle and passionate love triangle between Turiddu, who loves Lola; Santuzza, who loves Turiddu, the father of her child; and Alfio, the all-too-trusting husband of Lola. Mascagni’s music takes us through the emotional heights and depths of this tragic love story.
“Force of nature” mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick makes her company debut as she joins Italian tenor Salvatore Licitra (Andrea Chénier, Tosca), American baritone Gordon Hawkins (Porgy and Bess, Das Rheingold) and the Washington National Opera Orchestra and Chorus in a concert version of Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana.
