My First Opera

26 April 2013 - 12:51 PM

With my 40th birthday approaching, I asked if I could go to the opera as a present.  The trouble is, with the exception of seeing my local opera group put on a rather good showing of Nabucco, I have no idea about what I should see or where.

I am torn at the moment between seeing La Boheme at the ENO or waiting until later in the year when I understand that La Nozze di Figaro & Turandot will be on at Covent Garden.  Hubby is considerably less enthusiastic about this undertaking than I am so probably won't want to see anything which he might think of as the operatic version of a chick flick.

I'd be very grateful if anyone could give me some informed hints, tips or advice on what would be best.
