A very gracious and generous friend gave me two tickets to see excerpts from a couple of early Baroque operas. The operas from that period are very distinctive and quite different from the classical and romantic period operas that most people think of when they think of opera.

In any event, partially due to isolation and partially due to a holiday weekend that has drawn most of my usual suspects out of town, I've got no one to come with me to the opera. Going alone means no one to talk to during intermission or discuss it with afterward as well as being a terrible waste of a fairly expensive ticket.

So come with me. If you don't know opera, you'll get to experience something new. If you do love opera, you're in a for a wonderful time. The pre-show talk starts at 7pm. The whole thing is taking place at Jordan Hall in Downtown Boston. I plan to drive in and park there and will happily provide a ride there and back again. Oh, and don't be concerned about dressing up too much. I plan to "go bohemian" which means to not dress up and pretend that that decision is indicative of something other than laziness.

Don't make me bring a total stranger.

This seems familiar...

Thanks for the offer. Someone else *just* beat you to it. Perhaps next time. :)

I also wouldn't recommend going stag to see Actéon.

If things fall through with [ profile] magg1es I'd be interested!

Oh, I can see from here this thread is going to the dogs.

Shoot. I'm just getting to LJ for the first time in days. I could have used a little culture-infused break from my monotonous and ritualistic bar attendance.

Was it cool?

Halloo there.

Aside from [ profile] thoroughbass, who we already knew we had in common, I see that we have some of the usual "people who know everyone" suspects as mutual friends. I've been to [ profile] aerynne's house on a few occasions for social gatherings, perhaps we crossed paths there at some point? *shrug*

I like the definition of "go bohemian". :)
