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.

The opera was beautiful in every way----superb voices, exquisite sets, beautiful costumes and, lest we not forget, music by a master.
A perfect evening.

Description

Join Washington National Opera for Georges Bizet’s exotic feast for the eyes and ears. The prayers of the virgin priestess Leïla (Norah Amsellem) protect the fishermen of ancient Ceylon until Chief Zurga (Trevor Scheunemann) jealously condemns her and Nadir (Charles Castronovo) to death. When Zurga realizes that Leïla is the woman who once saved his life, he makes the ultimate sacrifice for their freedom and happiness. Acclaimed Italian conductor Giuseppe Grazioli makes his WNO debut.

In French with English supertitles.
