I'm attending the March 5th thru 9th program. Have a ticket for the evening performance of "Flying Dutchman" at Kennedy Center March 9th. Anyone else?

I've got my ticket for "Flying Dutchman" on March 9th. Anyone else interested?

Any opera lovers planning on taking this program Mar 5th thru 9th? Eric Owens is starring in "The Flying Dutchman" at Kennedy Center March 7th thru 21th.I'd like to somehow combine these two plus do other Washington sightseeing. Please let me know if interested.

I see you have to have advance tickets to get into the permanent exhibit at the Holocaust Museum. Road Scholar organizers...any chance you can help us with that? It looks like there are no individual tickets available until June 24.

We are coming from the midwest, Iowa.
