We all had an incredible night at the Opera. We were nervous about bringing our children ages 11, 9 and 4, but it turned out perfectly. The Opera was two hours with an intermission, which was great for our girls. They're still talking about it...More

We went for a performance on July 6th if memory does not fail me. I have lost the program but there was a very good mezzozoprano and pianist and they did a wonderful job. Well worth getting some culture on the touristic trail.

Chiara Panacci and Eugenio Milazzo were wonderful - standing ovation. They did an impeccable job - for the price you cannot beat it. Will look them up to see where they go. Chiapa's voice is beautiful and she sings with emotions and feelings.
