It was my first time attending the West Bay Opera. The performance and stage was top rate. I took my 18 yr. old daughter and we both enjoyed it very much. I would attend again.

West Bay Opera never disappoints. The intimate theater is an excellent venue to see the shows. Scenery, lighting and costumes were excellent and the voices were very strong - excellent quality production.
