An evening at the opera...

I'm just back from the Bastille Opera (the second largest opera house that we have in Paris). I when to see Tosca by Puccini, it was really great. I took this photo, which I like because of the light effect on the people silhouettes!

  2. We booked seats to see the ballet 'Notre Dame de Paris' at the Opera from Australia. Standing outside Opera Garnier with about twenty other poor fools, the realisation that we were at the wrong Opera house dawned. Despite the efforts of Alain Prost driving our taxi we missed the first act. We enjoyed what we did see so much we took up the offer to chance our arm and come back the next night to see if there was a spare few seats. With wonderfully deadpan understatement the Manager at Bastille muttered that he could squeeze us in. Six rows back and almost centre stage all four of us were dumbstruck on being ushered in. I'll never forget the smiles on my nine and twelve year olds' faces. We love Opera Bastille. We saw La Boheme later in our stay and new exactly were to go!

  3. A few years ago, just for something different, I bought a ticket to see La Traviata. I learned that I love opera. The Metropolitan Opera in New York has been producing some live simulcasts in movie theaters and I've seen a few. Since I can't play hockey or football anymore after a car accident I guess I just need to see more opera. (Yeah, you go figure it out.) -Jeff
