  • For opera lovers, one of the best venues in the world. Excellent acoustics (especially in height) Fabulous distributions It is almost impossible to be disappointed so the quality is at the rendezvous. (Director and singers) Very nice aesthetic Places at all prices Very rarely sold out (except the Ring of wagner)

  • Pre-opera lectures are nice. Nice venue. Shows vary. Nice old school building makes it feel like an event. Some folks get super dressed up. Others come as they are. Parking at civic center garage works well. Lots of places for dinner around before or after the show. Seats are old and not very comfy.
  • Really wish the opera was made more available to people like me with less money but a love for the art! Fortunately I'm sure all the proceeds go to paying the stellar musicians and cast that put on these brilliant performances. I was more than happy to pay for my seat! My father is in opera, and I used to see him perform in the Sacramento Opera, there as well, I noticed it is generally for "high society". How can we make fine art more available to the middle and lower class? When do we hold the rich accountable for antiquating and locking these art forms behind golden doors? Hopefully the opera remains as gilded and beautifully supported as it is now in the future, but I fear it will forever be an old fantasy for aristocrats. MAKE ALL FINE ARTS SLIDING SCALE!
