La Rondine

"Soul meets soul on lovers's lips"  Percy Bysshe Shelly

Last night Steve and I saw the Metropolitan Opera HD live broadcast (but this was the encore, so not really live) of Puccini's La Rondine, at the Savoy Theater.

It was absolutely wonderful!  What an experience to see a performance from the Met, in your own hometown.  Now I long to go to New York and actually see a performance at the Metropolitan Opera,  but how happy I am just to go to the local theater, eat popcorn and watch a fantastic opera with my guy.

The love quote of the day was so appropriate to the theme of La Rondine.   Now I just need to obtain the cd!

Next Saturday, live from the Met in HD at Savoy is Orfeo ed Euridice.  I am sure it will be wonderful.
