This opera house was remodeled several years back, and it isn’t wonderful. Every sit is a great location, super titles easy to read. I love the various levels and the box seating. Starbucks offers free coffee during intermission. There’s a great light walkway too, enjoy...More

Very nice theater and a welcoming lobby, although a little crowded. The boxes were strange, looked as if they were hanging form the sides and I assume the view from some of them had to be obstructed, but I am not sure. We saw Aida,...More

Be warned - parking is always tricky and expensive. The venue is lovely, if smallish compared to other theaters that host operas, but that is part of the charm. I enjoyed the operas enough this year that I bought season tickets for 17-18.

I, recently, took my son to see "Shen Yun" at McCaw Hall. The only reason I didn't give this venue an excellent score is because of the parking lot across the street. I paid $20 to park for 2 1/2 hours. Maybe I'm cheap but,...More

We came here for a Shen Yun show. Parking across the street was easy and reasonable at $15 and a sky bridge to the opera house. Very convenient. Before we went to the show, we tried out the Henry's Taiwanese restaurant. The place was cozy,...More

Traviata is one of my all-time favorites. My family was really looking forward to this performance as I have been talking about it for at least five months. We dressed up, and arrived in high anticipation of excellent music and true magic of Verdi's talent....More
