We really enjoyed it. We are spoiled, being from Chicago, where we have world-class opera, but the talent in the Il Trovatore production in Montreal, was unassailable. Fabulously, really. Sets were non-existent, but that's why God gave us an imagination. Lighting was creative and well-executed. Loved the orchestra. (My one gripe is the Anvil Chorus was wasted by a group of men waving broomstick-equivalents around).
Anyway, the facility is modern, and certainly more comfortable than what we are used to in Chicago (but what's with no middle aisles. If you are claustrophobic or mobility impaired you have to sit by the wall). I say, give it a try.
