Unless you are in excellent health, just go ahead and pay the $23 for parking in the Kennedy Center. Even the closest alternative at the Watergate is a long-ish walk, uphill, in the cold. If Metro is convenient for you and you are not in a rush, that, with the shuttle bus to the Kennedy Center, is the best option.

I don't mind paying for convenience so I just paid for parking at The Kennedy Center which was $20. I paid ahead online and saved $3 and had a guaranteed spot.

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.

Wonderful performance. Good seats for the price. An opera lover's opera. The lead singer, Sondra Radvanovsky (who alternated with Renee Fleming) was marvelous, as were all the leads. She brought down the house.

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.
