Llloyd's Restaurant is just across the street from the opera house, and they feature a nice menu with a variety of offerings at very reasonable prices, with good service and a pleasant atmosphere.

Use the SpotHero app to reserve a spot in the parking garage in the building next to the Lyric. Was inexpensive and we were in and out quickly.

beautiful performances and great seats for a great price! Making opera affordable by offering seats on Goldstar - I love it!

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
