"Opera in recital" tries to transmit different emotions from different shows. But the sound in foyer is not really so good as expected....

We went to see Giselle and we loved it. We had tickets in the balcony but we could see the scene very well. Beautiful building. Beautiful mise en scene. Very polite staff. Highly recommended.
