The 6 pm free show is held at one of the two the Millennium Stages, which are kind of nestled back on opposite walls of the main lobby area. They are open stages, but set back far enough to feel enclosed. I was a little panicky after our outside adventure as suddenly there were many people lined up to sit down (as opposed to no people when we went outside). Luckily, children were invited to sit on the floor in front, and I sat on the steps leading up to the Concert Hall not far away.

There are giant curtains along the wall of windows, and for about 45 minutes I was almost blinded by the sun bearing down on me through a small opening—I seemed to be one of the only people affected by this, in case you were wondering about the odd sun glare in this picture.
