Wear comfortable shoes because almost always have to park under county buildings across the street when go to opera. Takes you to level 8 which is a level with elevator to pavillion.

Took my mother to the Saturday matinee performance and we both enjoyed it immensely. She is 97 and the performance was so entrancing (dancing, sets, costumes) that she stayed for the entire performance, which was over 2 1/2 hours.
