Daily Prompt – Tell us about the most exciting big night out you had recently.
Early this year, we had our special night. As a surprise Christmas present, Him Indoors gave me two tickets for the opera. Of course, I took him with me. I wore my new red dress and he wore his tweed jacket, a white shirt and a red and blue tie. We went out for a meal, a Bavarian restaurant in the city centre. I had some cordon blue and Him Indoors had snitzel, together with a wheat beer for me and a lager for Him. Then we walked around town, the Christmas market was gone, but some stands were still there, selling warm mulled wine and pretzels. We reached the National Theatre, still quite early, so we took some photos of the area, with all the lights. We went in, we ordered 2 glasses of Chardonnay and sat at the table with a long stem of fresh red rose. The bell rang and the opera started. It was “La Boheme” by Puccini. The orchestra was practicing their tunes, people coming in the theatre and the whole place was wonderful. We had great seats at the parquet, near the orchestra pit, at the middle. The opera was great – Mimi, Rodolfo, Marcelo and Muzetta – they were all brilliant. I ended up in tears when Mimi died. A great night, indeed!
