It was very expensive, but definitely worth it. I was so excited to see my first professional opera!

“After the Met, the best Opera company in N America”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

we have been attending their out of towner's series for sever years. This is a nice series as it allows you to see four operas in two visits. Wonderful pit orchestra, good singing, and nice staging.
