Romeo & Juliet - A Night At the OPERA - Week 6
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?
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!
This is the scene where Romeo & Juliet meet with the Friar!
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!
