Reviewed 6 March 2012

Get ready to be amazed! It's truly an experience that you will never forget. Book tickets as far in advance as possible for the best selection of seats. Any opera I've seen here has been supurb! I recommend to all ages..

“Great experience!”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Never a big opera fan I had a great time for a performance of Don Giovani. The three and a half hours went by quickly. Be warned that if you get a box seat on the balcony level, take the "obstucted view" warning seriously. We could not see about 40% of the stage even when leaning over.
