Main "opera house" is on second floor of this semi-antique building. Accessible by stairs and by tiny elevator. First floor offers space for more intimate shows - usually accompanied by catered fine dinner. Wide selection of entertainment throughout the year. Friendly atmosphere.

The building from an historical perspective is magnificent. Acoustics are good. Beside the Opera House are lovely gardens with a gazebo where many concerts take place in the summer. There is usually a full bar.

My husband and I went to see "Chicago" and prior to the play, dinner was prepared and served by Carrie-Ann. Even though the actors were quite good, I did not enjoy the play due to the vulgarity but the dinner was exceptional.
