Fantastic opera. Domingo sang beautifully and with great emotion. Loved the numerous trios and quartets with the voices blending spectacularly. Quite a treat...

The opera was wonderful. Great singing. Great story. The only problem was the woman with the bag full of food who was so disruptive in the Founder's Circle area. She made a tremendous amount of noise crinkling and opening her numerous bags of...continued

One of Verde's best operas, with the lead role being performed by Placido Domingo. What can I say? It was great stuff!!

I have been an Opera fan for many years, and then I saw I Due Foscari and that made me realize that all the Operas I considered as excellent could not even come close to this performance. Placido Domingo and the whole cast delivered a power house...continued

Not exactly Verdi's best known work but the Placebo and company did fine.

Great singing, beautiful Verdi music. I can see what it is not as popular as his other works as the story is such a downer. There wasn't one happy or funny moment. Sets were very interesting and worked well

Very rarely do we get the chance to experience true greatness - that was what happened Tuesday night at The Two Foscari. All 3 leads were exceptional - great vocal work !! The minor leads were good, and the chorus did a good job as well. Great...continued

It was a marvelous production of an opera I wasn't familiar with. The pre opera talk with Conlon, the conductor definitely added to the enjoyment and understanding of Verdi and the opera.

Placido Domingo is a musical and artistic treasure of our time. He's not getting any younger, so go see him every chance you get!!!! It almost felt like he was in a different world from the rest of the singers because his acting is so powerful...continued

The opera itself was terrific. But our original seats were at the far end of the orchestra row and the overhanging loge blocked our view of the top part of the stage. Those seats should have been indicated as having partial obstructed view. ...continued
