Opera Night

It helps to have friends in high places. We scored tickets to the sold out show of La Boheme. Who cares if our seats were in the last row in the highest part of the theater? We could still see and plus, we looked fabulous.

Dumpling was a dapper *date*. During the final act when one character is singing about his coat he leans over and whispers in my ear, "He sure does love his coat."




Supple's *date* was actually in the performance as a waiter. He did an excellent job. We watched him scrupulously through binoculars. Way to go Chachi!

I ran into two people I knew at the opera. Funny because I was in a different town. It really IS a small world. After the performance we met up with Chachi and dined at the one, the only Original Joe's. It's old school and the food involves a lot of meat and excessive portions. We were famished and tore into that bread like we were starving artists like the characters in La Boheme.

Sometimes life imitates art.

beautiful dress, Sizz. I'm envious... ;)

Esso's best friend's brother (phew) is an opera singer in Austria. At our friend's wedding, he sang the most beautiful passage in Italian--and I was in the front row! Brought tears to my eyes.

I saw La Boheme a few years ago in New York and loved it. Glad you had such a nice time. You all look garjus!

Mr_Rodacre said...

you know it is ironic that an opera about penniless artists actually costs so much to attend (unless of course one has the aforementioned friends in high places)

I had fun!

(and did I tell you how amazing you looked last night?) ;)

Sizzle said...

would you believe i got that dress for $30?! woo!

Rabbit said...

The dress only cost $30?! I bet the tickets to the show cost more!

Maman said...

What a stunning group you all are, but what I'm loving the most is that clock in the background!

We had one just like it in our livingroom growing up. Vintage, or just made to look like vintage?

Sizzle said...

it's vintage, all the way baby. ;)

No mention of the set. I remember the first opera I went to (music was great) but what most impressed me was the set. It was stunning. (But I can't remember what the opera was!)

What a beatiful group of people... and you, my dear, just shine!
