Always a pleasure to visit this place which brings such pleasant memories. Over the 60 years I have been visiting it has been refurbished but still retains its distinctive style. Latest visit was my first to an opera which was most enjoyable.

Call or email the venue, they will be able to advise (but you may have to wait until a few days before the show, they may not have this info at this time).
