This beautiful building is still being renovated, so the auditorium is inaccessible which is why it doesn't get 5 stars, but don't let that put you off going to see the rest. A lot of effort and love has gone into the renovation. Tours are...More
As title states you see very little as the auditorium is closed for months. Price should reflect this I think. Nice touch to have some opera sung in lieu of seeing inside but you really do see very little. Shame as we’re unlikely to return....More

I does not appear that you can tour other than during their scheduled time. It will be crowded and due to construction. limiting. It is also suggested that you skip the cost for the mini concert.
