Amazing experience! Beautiful music! Ignore the negative reviews—they were super organized about seating—any seat is great, venue was gorgeous and well heated/cooled and it was a very joyous, uplifting beautiful musical evening.

This was our first visit to see Opera. It was more on the basic side but the performers were amazing and the show had a good amount of variety that kept us very engaged! Would recommend for a nice evening out!

Amazing concert love it. Pizza is amazing, tiramisu is okay but not I expected, as it's in a bowl and mostly cream - not sure if that's an italian thing
