Today was opera day.
Once a year, eight like-minded ladies (myself included, naturally) book a box at the Royal Albert Hall to see an opera. We don’t mind what we see, we’ve watched whatever they happened to be putting on for the last three years.
This year we expanded and twelve of us trotted off to the Royal Albert Hall to see Madam Butterfly. It was as beautiful as I remember from the last time I saw it, if mildly incomprehensible – thank goodness I know the story.
Five of us met for lunch first and a different six of us had a cocktail afterwards, before heading home.
All in all, it was a very lovely day and I’m already looking forward to next year.
