“Very Disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Recommend not subscribing until you have tried it once. Acoustics and orchestra way off. And be prepared for the 'regulars'. They are very aggressive and not all that friendly. Just stay out of their way!

“I am a subscriber and I love it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I go see 4 or 5 operas/concerts each season, and I really enjoy it. The first season I got seats in the upper balcony, not the best spot and a HIKE up the stairs. This year I'm in the dress circle. Should be better.

Fabulous performance by Christine Goerke in the title role. Not to be missed. This was the experience of a lifetime.

“The Sound.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The Acoustics are amazing in that venue. I think that any group would sound amazing there with acoustical background.

“We are not regulars to the Opera.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We decided that Carmen would be a good place to start.. Carmen was lively & fun, what I would expect from a world class opera company. I have not been pleased with the calls from the Lyric every couple months asking us to buy season memberships.
