We experienced the COC on a Sunday afternoon. We sat in $150 orchestra seats. There were two 25 minute intermissions. The orchestra blasted out the beautiful voices of the talented singers. Most patrons dressed appropriately in sport coats, dress slacks, dressy tops or conservative dresses....More

We've been COC subscribers for 20 years. Norma was one of the best ever! If you like opera, you need to see and hear this presentation! All I can say about the lead performers and the orchestra is Bravo!

My wife and I expected much from this, given the buzz that had surrounded Dmitri Tcherniakov's production. We were disappointed. The singing was great, with Russell Braun as the Don and Kyle Ketelsen as Leporello heading a very strong cast. The orchestra was also excellent....More
