KC cafeteria is horrible. Cafeteria with real restaurant $prices. Go over to Watergate and find pizza/salad place or hotel rest.for a bit more upscale. KC should be ashamed of itself for their "offerings".

I really enjoyed the show! Costumes, singing, music, and viewing was all brilliant!! Lucrezia's voice as well as the lead player's voices were strong and vibrant. Some of the secondary players could have projected a bit more.

Excellent production. Cast (without R. Flemming) was still outstanding. Seats were as promised. Without Goldstar I wouldn't be seeing as many operas as I do.
