Performances were great - so good that I found myself not caring that I didn't know what they were saying and stopped reading the subtitles since I just wanted to watch the performers and hear their (amazing) voices instead of being distracted by reading. Overall a good production, though it could get a bit repetitive at times(we heard you the first 7 times, move on to something different Othello!).

A little slow at times and a bit repetitive, (yes, we know - you love Desdemona!) but overall a fantastic job by all. I found myself ignoring the subtitles and just enjoying the music and the performances. but does intermission have to be 30...continued
*Opening Night (Oct. 5): *The Opening Night Gala is a chance to mix and mingle with fellow music lovers in the glorious Civic Opera House. Thrill to the inspiring energy of a new season while sipping champagne and enjoying delectable sweets and savories. The reception takes place in the opulent Rice Grand Foyer and throughout all lobbies before the performance and during intermission. This is a black tie event and formal attire is requested.
* Running time for this show is approximately 3 hours.
