Back from the cinema opera live. It was great, the screen was huge and they showed the real stage just as it was happening, including the prop changes in the intervals. Flo would have liked that!. It was a little known opera, Francesca da Rimini, by the New York Met. Francesca has to marry one of three brothers. She and Paolo fell in love, but the brother the parents made her marry wasn't him, it was the one with the gammy leg. Anyway, it all ended in tragedy and death, as usual. They will be doing a great programme from next autumn, with Tosca, La Boheme, Prince Igor and others.
Then we went for a pizza at OH's favourite pizza place in a very old building with exposed stone walls, beams and a proper pizza oven.
It's pouring with rain now. It was nice this morning and we gardened, but it started to rain when we went out.
