A Night at the Opera

This past weekend Mr. B and I went to the opera: La Bohème.

This was fun and different for us, as we had not been to the opera in more years than we can count. Not being opera aficionados, we opted for the less expensive tickets in the balcony. But the muses were smiling on us: the day before the performance we received a complimentary upgrade and found ourselves sitting in orchestra seats that cost five time what we paid for our tickets! The music was gorgeous and familiar to us mainly from one of our all-time favorite movies: Moonstruck.

This is the opera that Loretta and Ronny go to see and the music from the opera is played in the background of key scenes in the movie. There are parallel themes in the opera and the movie which I never realized before and now I want to see the movie again (for the 50th or 60th time!).
