In many respects, GWU is DC's university. It has lots of venues open to the public and owns most of the land in the Foggy Bottom area. Even the World Banks rests on land owned by GWU. One of its under appreciated venues is the...More
If you have an opportunity to go to an event at the Lisner Auditorium, I would take it. You will have college students and professors in the audience. It's not too big, and restrooms are on site. We were fortunate to be sitting near the...More
I went here for the first time for a concert. It was a quaint auditorium and what made it all worth while was the employees. From the greeater at the door taking my ticket to an usher willing to take pictures of my friends and...More
We went to hear Bellini's La Siraniera: ridiculous story, great singing. The opera was truly fine, and the student & elderly ushers are TOTALLY knowledgeable, helpful and welcoming. But the hall leaves a lot to be desired. The MEN's room line during the intermission was...More

If you're familiar with legroom in economy class on a budget airline, you'll be shocked that there is even less at Lisner. Trust me. Unless you get a seat at the end of the row where there's no seat in front of you, you won't...More
We went to Lisner to hear Opera Lafayette's performance of opera from the French Revolution era. The acoustics are fine; the seats reasonably comfortable; the "decor" as plain as you could get. The singers were fine, though the staging, meant as both counterpoint and underlining...More
The Washington Concert Opera series is held at this auditorium. I find the acoustics in this hall quite suitable for such performances. It is just one massive space, so there is no overhanging balconies to muffle the sounds. The only drawback is their antiquated rest...More
