Absolutely amazing how a woman can sing... Madama Butterfly was worth a trip mainly for Hyeseoung Kwon. Besides singing she could also act the role. Touching! The costumes were a bit boring. Opera house itself impressive. Servings during intermission were elegant and not unreasonably priced.

While it is very much a modern opera house, so doesn't have the charm of some of the older European theatres, the companies that perform here are of top quality. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the performance of Rigoletto was superb! Really good performance,...More

I didn't know what to expect and the whole performance was a complete surprise. Kenneth Greve has made a surprising and fantastic ballet and I really enjoyed watching it

The opera/ballet has a good website and nice selection of shows ( I saw a terrific Kullervo ballet), but the website would not take my credit card, so I got the ticket onsite. If you want an elegant evening, reserve a pastry and coffee to...More
