The program was excellent and deserved the long standing ovation it received. Our only difficulty was that the wrong address was on the ticket. Fortunately we figured it out and arrived just in time

I took my husband and some who both have a limited attention span. They both loved it!! An hour long was just a perfect introduction to Puccini.

Talented professionals who give 100%, enjoying themselves. Inclusive fun atmosphere, beautiful setting, amazing acoustics!

Fabulous event, highly recommended. It was a little difficult to find, despite google maps.

Wonderful Puccini concert highlighting some of his most famous arias
