We had our first opera of the season at the new Kauffman Center a few weeks ago. That place is HUGE!!! It was also very very bright & during intermissions when we were using the bathroom or getting a drink Courtney had to wear his sunglasses! Our seats are great - again! It was nice to have the subtitles right in front of us & we didn't have to read them above the stage. It tricked your eyes a little at the beginning but we got used to it. There were 7 floors & there is a bar on every floor. The only thing missing was the cookies. Courtney LOVED the cookies they had at the Lyric! We've got another opera coming up in less than a month.
