La Boheme

I am, as a rule, much more interested in Broadway musicals than opera, straight plays, dance, orchestra, etc.

That being said...a show is a show is a show! And how delightful they are. 

One of the new Marshalls has never been to the opera or the ballet and is trying to check those off his bucket list. 

So I collected another Marshall and his girlfriend - who just happens to be an opera stage manager. The two of them shared insightful operatic and musical history over a delightful dinner that happily included roasting passion fruit marshmallows for s'mores.

And then off to the Coliseum we went to bawl our eyes out over "La Boheme" - the tragic opera that inspired "Rent". (The smiley photo of me was most definitely taken pre-show, prior to the red eyes and wet face.)
