How was your experience?
I am not an opera fan and went as a treat for my friend. WOW was I surprised. I loved the set, the costumes and the story. The English subtitles helped me understand the words and the plot. Only problem was that my friend and I, both of whom have knees problems and are ID handicapped because of them, ended up in two of the only 8 seats that were right where there was a panel and our knees hit it all the first half and we could not move our knees to find respite. By intermission we were barely able to stand. Fortunately there were empty seats behind us and we could be out of pain for the second half.
