Aida in Verona (2006)

I thought I’d try out the WordPress app for my Blackberry by posting this old picture, taken in the Arena di Verona while we were waiting for the start of the sumptuous production of Verdi’s Aida on 30th July 2006. The Opera doesn’t start there until it gets dark, but the evening sun was glinting on the gold pyramid sitting in the centre of the stage, so I couldn’t resist getting a picture. The late start meant we enjoyed a nice dinner before the performance, along with a very nice bottle of Amarone

  1. ahhhh Italian dry red, one of Italy’s greatest symbolic wines. Like your style!

  2. Numbered seats eh? There’s posh.

    The Arena di Verona cushions, which seem to have been designed for people with exceptionally large bottoms, are also ideal for concerts at Llandaff cathedral which must have some of the most uncomfortable chairs in Wales.
