Watched Swan Lake. Very attractive building much nicer then the ROH in London. Excellent performances, watching the locals taking their pictures in the stairwells is also a fascinating performance to watch

Saw the Barbiere di Sevilla here. Beautiful building out- and inside. Outstanding performers. Friendly price. Mixed crowd. I will come back as often as I can make time and find a friend to come with me!

Did not have the luxury of visiting inside this wonderful building but the outside provides a fascinating view. Plenty of photo opportunities with fountains at the side. Well worth a visit.
