Six Word Saturday





Enjoyed a night at the opera


My mother loves opera but doesn't like going to the theatre on her own. About a year ago she asked me to go to La Boheme with her. Having never been to an opera, when I took my seat was I somewhat apprehensive. By the time I left I was converted! Later in the year we went to Madama Butterfly.

Last Tuesday we had the best seats in the house for La Traviata. 

In September it will be Carmen followed by Tosca, and this time next year Die Fledermaus. I’m hooked!

  1. La Boheme converted me, too, though I've only had the opportunity to go once since.

  2. How awesome! Some people think I'm weird because I like Italian opera...and I don't speak Italian! LOL Just something intriguing about it.

    1. Nor do I Jessy - thank goodness for the subtitle screen above the stage! Actually I think Italian is a beautiful language to listen to even you don't understand a word that's being said!

  9. I've never been to an opera live but watching them on tv or online is a treat. I bet it's more fun live. Good for you for having seen its beauty up close.
