Short post today, folks. One day in Milano while waiting for Brett and Teri to arrive culminated in a visit to La Scala. I was hoping for Italian Opera and they are performing many. However, on this night, Benjamin Britten’s The Turn of the Screw was on tap. This is one dark opera alla breve (2 55 minute acts). I won’t go into the details of the opera plot, but just think the usual stuff; death, insanity, sadness, and more death. Here are a few shots of the theater:
Whilst walking around town, we happened on another small theater that was presenting a harpsichord concert at 5pm. We were tired of sight seeing and decided to spend 5 Euro and see the concert. The harpsichordist was fab:
The concert series:
The Duomo (palace) in Milan:
And finally, a pic of us at La Scala:
We just finished our 3 days in Cinque Terre, with Brett and Teri and now head off with them for one night in Lucca (over near Pisa). We will stop on our way and check out the Leaning Tower of Pisa and then spend the afternoon in the walled town of Lucca. From there, we head to Ascoli Piceno, which is at about the Rome latitude, over on the Eastern side of Italy. I will try and get you some Cinque Terre pics in the next couple of days. Ciao!
