We arrived in the area around 5:00 pm to eat before the 6:30 showing. Next time I'd prefer to arrive by 4:30 so that we're not rushing before the show.

What endures is that the Academy players are drawn from the cream of musical talent, producing a richness of sound and virtuosic skill recognized the world over.

The Academy is perhaps best known for recording the Mozart music used in the Oscar-winning Best Picture Amadeus.
