Just seen Busy Lizzie's thread yesterday re the opera - you would have loved the performance of Aida,which I saw 20 years ago in Luxor, Egypt. It was staged at the Temple of Queen Hatshepshut,under the mountains, near the Valley of the Kings.
To reach it easily, the Egyptian Army built a pontoon bridge, spanning the Nile, from Luxor to Thebes - the whole thing was amazingly well organised, and to see Aida in a setting like that,in the desert -unforgettable.
That sounds amazing Pentillie.
I feel a bit flat today. OH is in England and it's always raining. But OH is back tomorrow.
