“A great night out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Excellent and entertaining show but well below average food and pretty poor service considering we were there off season and they weren't particularly busy!

“One of the great opera houses on the planet.”

Went on English Tour - free on Tuesdays. Got to hear a piano rehearsal, although we were not able to attend a musical event. Well worth the visit.
