Seats were great. Performance was good, not stellar. The orchestra was sometimes louder than the vocals, particularly from the back of the stage. The female lead was a little too old for the part. This is a classic opera and its rendition was...continued

This was our first time at the opera. We have been meaning to try the opera for a long time, but sticker shock has kept us from getting tickets. So when we saw half-price tickets, we decided to take the plunge. It was an interesting experience!...continued

I know that the critics were tough on the principals, but still, how can a first-class opera house totally fail with one of the world's most beautiful operas? And at half price, you can hardly afford not to see it, and in a decent seat, no less....continued

It will sound so cheesy, but I laughed and I cried. I had heard this production was great and I strongly agree. I loved it and would recommend it.

It was a wonderful performance. We were disappointed because the costuming for the performers was not as elaborate as we expected the we have seen over time on posters and ads from other venue's.

My seats were fantastic, and the Opera was magnificent.
My Goldstar tickets were not at WILL CALL, they had their own stand in the main lobby that was not easily visible due to the usual large crowd waiting in that area for the doors to open. But...continued

Getting our there tickets for Madama Buterfly was a real breeze considering the fact that the show was a few minutes to start. We were redirected to a station across the foyer, though.
We loved our seating location & the opera, of course. Goldstar...continued
