I love Seattle Opera but not all of their production. Seattle Opera has a well deserved very good reputation. But there are productions that I find questionable. They are currently doing a revised production of Cosi Fan Tutti. A wonderful Mozart opera but when I...More

Having never been to the opera and not knowing what to expect, we asked where the best place to sit was. We were told that the balcony above the glass would give the best sound. The talent was awesome, but being so far up, we...More
