The show was fabulous. We went, not knowing quite what to expect, but it was entirely unexpected, which made it all the more fun. Gatsby meets Cirque de Soleil was a wonderful step beyond the original. There was so much that was awe inspiring. Thanks to everyone!

It was so wonderful to see inside the opera house and to be able to sit in the rooms. The main orchestra hall was so amazing. Glad we took the tour and were able to learn a lot about the place. Sheila is an amazing guide!
