Romeo & Juliet - A Night At the OPERA - Week 6

This trip to Italy has DEFINATELY been a huge blessing!
I must say that I was blessed to be able to take Alyssa to her FIRST OPERA!!
We went to see ROMEO & JULIET in Verona, Italy!

I just love saying that! Isn't that cool?

 Our Pre-Opera Snack of Fruit!

We went with a group of Angela's friends and we had a BLAST!!
Verona in the summer is VERY HOT! The sun heats up the stone steps of the Arena and those are our Seats for the night! Have you ever notice how long a stone stays hot?? I have - it stays hot for HOURS!!
The Opera itself was beautiful! We bought the playbook in English so we could follow along and read what they were singing!
When you come into the opera they hand you a candle and everyone is supposed to light it right before the opera starts!

Dont the candles look cool?

 More Candle Pictures!

The cast was HUGE and the dancing was incredible!
This is the party scene!

These are the Montegues coming to the party.

Romeo's Ride!

Juliet being introduced to the partygoers.

Juliet in her room!

Romeo climbing up to her balcony for a kiss!

This is the scene where Romeo & Juliet meet with the Friar!

And then he marry's them!

The Wedding!

The fighting of the two families!

Romeo was banished because he killed Tybalt.

Juliet is told that she is going to marry Parris.

She fakes her death, but Romeo doesn't know its fake...

So he takes the poison and then she wakes up!

The End!
It was really a pretty version of Romeo & Juliet!
And, it was a perfect 1st Opera for Alyssa!
I am soooo glad that we went!
