Some British friends of ours decided to treat themselves to a trip to the opera when they came down for their annual winter visit. After booking about six months in advance, they found that they were going to be unable to attend after all. However, rather than letting the tickets go to waste, we were asked if we were available and interested.
Well, let's see. Would it be interesting enough to skip one of our two weekly chorale practices? What a hard choice!
Thus, we ditched sweaters and jeans and decked ourselves out in more fancy duds and took ourselves into the Old Town for a delightful evening of culture.
