There's a parking garage right across the street, but you have to do a u-turn to get there.

I sat in row U and it was a good seat for viewing the opera, but the voices did not carry well. I don't know if they used microphones, but it did not sound like it.

Description

Puccini’s most expressive opera draws from a collection of true-life sketches describing life among the original bohemians, the poor artists of Paris’s Latin Quarter. Hungry but cheerful, the poet Rodolfo shares a garret with the painter Marcello and two others. One moonlit Christmas Eve, the frail seamstress Mimi comes to Rodolfo’s door for help, and the two fall passionately in love, while Marcello carries on a turbulent affair with flirtatious Musetta. But Rodolfo is impossibly jealous of Mimi, and the two regretfully part, until Musetta reveals that Mimi is dying of consumption. Rodolfo flies to Mimi’s side, and the lovers are united, only to be separated forever by Mimi’s death.
