The talent in this permanent festival was worth the price of admission. As we had never experienced opera before, it was a great introduction and was truly awe-inspiring. The performances were perfect. The soprano on the night we went was incredible.

I think it's as the comment before this. This Puccini concert was a wonderful memory for us! I hope it works out for the train.
