At the Opera

Tonight we went to the National Opera House for a performance of La Bohème, went out for coffee and walked along Khreshatyk.

I recently finished reading Bel Canto (recommended by Megan and amazingly found at the Stoned Baboon.) As I watched the audience during the intermissions, I picked out which ones were true opera lovers like some of the characters in the book.

And while there were no Yushchenko, Tak! scarves, orange was very prominent on stage last night. Hubby has more photos and thoughts up.

Wow! You finished it already? I just started it yesterday and am not very far yet... But I have read one other book this year and am halfway through another one... still, I'd like to be further in Bel Canto than I am. Maybe this afternoon.

Well, for several years I had no attention span and couldn't read anything. It was miserable. I couldn't do more than skim through magazine articles.

Last January I finally started reading again, and in the past month the energy and focus has come back even more. *grin* Once you mentioned Bel Canto, I put it at the top of my list, because I can get so few books here that others are reading.

I think you'd really like "The Bookseller of Kabul," too.
