I have been attending Spoleto for over twenty years. My experience with my husband and friends last night, June 2 was a memorable disaster. We were sent a letter requesting that we be sure to arrive at the Don Giovani performance at the Memminger Auditorium early. Upon arrival we waited almost a half and hour outside to enter this building that looks like it should have been condemned 50 years ago. We chose the ticket at $65 which brought us up to a balcony that hung over the orchestra and at least over a major part of the staging area. We were not able to see a good portion of the show which was taking place under the balcony. The balcony is a narrow area with old wooden seats, steep dark stairs for exits, extremely uncomfortable , hot and humid and looking like a fire and safety hazard. Nowhere in the program were we told that we would have an obstructed view of the show nor that this building is not handicap friendly. We are truly offended that we were treated in such a manner.

It is shameful for an enterprise like Spoleto to use a venue like Memminger.
