It was unbelievable! I loved every second of it, the musicians played every note with their heart, you could clearly see they love what they do. The time passed fairly quick because it was so entertaining. I would consider to take at least categories II to have good view and arrive 20-30 minutes before start to get also a good seat. Would do it any time again!
