An afternoon at the Opera

an opera afternoon for the residents

We are a community that loves classical music and opera. Most of our residents used to be avid enthusiasts of this beautiful art form. They know all the songs and characters.
Nowadays is not as easy as it once was, to go to the west end for a cultural evening, so after getting a few ideas on which operas they preferred, we got together on a Wednesday afternoon and enjoyed a 1968 version of La Traviatta, with Anna Moffo, Gino Bechi and Franco Bonisolli.
Like with great productions we had an interval before the third act, when residents stretched their legs and enjoyed a nice cup of tea. After this, we continue watching this wonderful production, been amazed by the beautiful voices… and at the end, the final scene… a few watery eyes could be seen around the room.
All in all, it was a great afternoon to spend with some lovely people.
