Last night I went to opening night of the Minnesota Opera with my friend Amy. Black tie! The opera was good, but not a great one (Bizet's The Pearl Fishers). It was kind of predictable for a an opera - love triangle, broken vows of chastity, death sentence, last minute remorse and the final death of somebody. Great people watching in all the fancy clothes and great conversations afterwards about the strange costume and set choices. All together a nice night out!
