  • We enjoyed the opera family day event. Children enjoyed all crafts. Face paintings by the professionals who do opera actors makeup are amazing. 20 mins a session for each group demonstration is great. The pieces demoed in the performance are so fun and interesting for the introduction and get the feeling how operas are. It is well though and organized.
  • Lovely venue. Great acoustics. Perfect location... easy to find. Plenty of concessions. Fun extras like the camera and red carpet backdrop!
