Today, the plan is for Mom and me (yes, that’s grammatically correct) to go to church together, then to lunch and then to the opera.
We missed the first two productions of the season due to Mom’s repeated health problems. Fingers crossed that she stays well.
The opera we hope to see is Puccini’s MADAME BUTTERFLY click on this link and give yourself a treat by listening to a recording of a bit of Un Bel Di from it. This was the first opera Mom ever took me to, so it’s very special to us, even apart from the intense beauty of the music.
We plan to have lunch at a Chinese restaurant, since we don’t know offhand where a Japanese restaurant is, between here and the Brown. We’ll probably get there and there’ll be a Japanese joint right across the street. Okay, I just Googlized it, and there are several, but they’re either too expensive or you have to make reservations or they got bad reviews or all of the above, so we’ll probably just go to the Chinese buffet.
I’ll let you know how the opera goes.
p.s. I’m posting today also at The Write Type, about the impossibility of “cheating” at NaNoWriMo.
WRITING PROMPT: Look up the plot of an opera and set it in a different time/place and write a tweaked story line for it.
