How was your experience?
The opera was enjoyable for the most part.I'm no opera expert, but I thought the singing, dancing, and music, generally, were excellent. I did not "get" a lot of the lyrics--very repetitive and some did not make a great deal of sense to me, despite being in English. The Terrace Theater was disappointing. They did not have enough seats set up for the before-show talk, the usher gave me erroneous information about something, and the bathrooms at intermission were a mob scene. Parking is $10, so be ready for that.
