Bursts of applause and cheers of "Bravo!"... A stage covered in rose petals and actors taking their bows.
Friday night was my first time at the opera and I loved it!
Three girlfriends and I went to see Madame Butterfly - it was really beautiful. The whole thing was sung in Italian, and I recognized one of the haunting tunes they sung. I had heard it before, but never realized that it was Puccini's Madame Butterfly. It was lovely.
The story takes place in Japan, when a lieutenant in the US army marries a beautiful Japanese girl with a name that perfectly describes her fragile beauty. I won't give away any more details - I highly recommend you go see it!
After enjoying the opera, there was cake to be had. What's the Opera without sweets afterward? So of course I indulged in a rich slice of Black Russian Cake.
How was your weekend, my friendlets?
