I would suggest to bring a bottle of water and small snake for the intermission.

This event was wonderful! I enjoyed the conductor's talk beforehand, the orchestra and the vocals brought a magical otherworldly experience to life. Verdi would be proud.
The venue was a good choice since it was convenient, had good acoustics...continued

The performance was great as was the brief informative lecture beforehand. I also like the venue and would attend other events there.
