A Night at the Opera



We love the Opera, but the cost is prohibitive for us, so when I saw the special that threw in a free dinner with your ticket, we jumped at the chance. (It still was big bucks but psychologically it seemed cheaper).


We raced off to La Boheme, with it's glamorous Berlin pre-war sets (we'd just seen Cabaret a few days before so it fitted in nicely, continuing the theme).









But the real show stealer, as always, is the building itself and the view from the Sydney Opera House at interval!

When you're there, you can't help loving life.



Happy New Year Everyone - and Roosters, take care!!

  1. Sounds like a fabulous night (and the free dinner would have made it extra special!). #OpenSlather :)

  3. Sydney Opera house is an amazing place. It definitely gives the chickens something to cluck about.

  4. Those roosters are awesome! I wouldn't mind seeing an opera, is it as emotional as I imagine it would be?

    1. Sometimes but usually it's so over the top (like a Soap Opera) that it isn't. I saw a Madame Butterfly once that made me cry.

  12. I imagine it would be a wonderful experience. I went to the Bolshoi Ballet many years ago to see Swan Lake and I was completely captivated by the music, the dancers and the whole performance. It was magical. #TeamLovinLife

  14. Oh, it sounds great and I love the idea of dinner etc... I've only been to the Opera once and it was a bit tedious but the venue wasn't particularly nice either! #teamlovinlife

  15. I agree, Lydia - the Opera House is always a sight to behold! Thanks for sharing that close up of the rooster lanterns outside, I missed them when we visited over the weekend.

  19. I have never been to opera. Maybe it is something I should plan for this year. There are many options here in Los Angeles. #TPThursday

  20. I've never been to the opera either. Not sure if it'd be my cup of tea ... but something I'd have to try to know for sure!
