Don't count on getting a taxi cab afterwards. They were giving priority pick-up to Uber & private cars. I would recommend the Foggy Bottom shuttle & taking the Metro if you can.

Avoid the garage at the KenCen at all costs: a rip-off. At the very least, park at the garage next door for $12. If you can't take the Metro to GW (and then the free shuttle to the KenCen), you can try parking on the street NEAR the Metro and then jumping on the bus. And then you can get a bite to eat before (or after).

It's a wonderful opera. I attended the Young Artists' performance, which means the leads are young and on the cusp of their opera careers. They were all terrific, especially Sorastro, Papageno and the Queen of the Night. I could tell the Young...continued
