A great place for a business conference. The architecture, the layout, the ambiance and the service set the mood - perfect for a business conference. The dinner on the opera stage was yet another great experience.

Fantastic building - best example of Italian Opera outside of Italy, with the most wonderful artistic director, Diane Polya-Zeitline, doing wonders to bring spectacular events to the public
