Following along with Boof’s 40 Day Challenge leading up to her 40th birthday, day 36:
36) A favourite book recommended by another book blogger
Well, since almost all the books on my TBR list come from book blogs or newsletters, it would be hard to choose just one! But a recent favorite was the book “Attachments.” I raved about it in a previous post, but it was just so clever and unique. It will rank up there as one of my favorites of 2011.
#36 on my list was: Go to an Opera. So I did! My list-making compatriot, Deadra, and I looked at the Minnesota Opera schedule and chose a more comedic story to go see. In November of 2007 we saw L’italiana in Algeri (The Italian Girl in Algiers). It was fun to get dressed up and go to the Ordway and the show was a lot of fun, too. It’s a long and complicated plot (you can read elsewhere) but it was not difficult to follow. We had great seats, but not for opera. We were close to the stage. Lesson learned: When you go to the opera, you want to sit NOT in the front rows so that you can better read the subtitles being projected above the stage! We still did all right, as I said, but next time I’ll look for different seats! Good times!
Off to read!

It’s been years since I went to the opera. I’d like to go again!
It was a great time and I’d like to go again!
