The only negative was the lack of leg room in the seats we were assigned.

Fantastic performance. It was great to see so many people my own age enjoying the opera as well.

How often do you see a show for $35?! Seats were upper balcony so we were a bit far up, but at the Shubert that doesn't really matter.
