At $70/pp for 3 courses (I had tortellini, duck confit, and opera cake) and a ride to and from the opera, it seems like a bargain. The opera was apparently not a bargain - lots of empty seats for Saturday night. The stage itself was a bit too sparse for my liking. And when are they going to put in stadium seating like at movie theaters? I felt like I was in an airline economy seat for 2 hrs. Apparently 8 years of not going to an opera has made me cranky. Should've made it Turandot. Hey, I saw the world premiere of M. Butterfly (maybe not *the* world premiere, but during its first run in Feb or Mar, 1988).
