Grand Rapids Opera

11 posts in this topic


Opera is your chance to dress up if you want, but keep in mind that a) you'll be seated b) in the dark and c) not on stage. Comfortable dress-up clothes if you're adding dinner before or after. Not the place for a bustle or a noisy charm bracelet.

BTW, "opera glasses" are small binoculars with gold trim and mother-of-pearl trim. Bring something similar so you can see the elaborate costumes up close.

SPOILER: they die.

A little googling shows that that night is the 'school night' so I'm sure there will be lots of young, under-dressers. :)

Not in this version. They were both very much alive when the show ended. It was odd, I don't know if they ended early or what (it was just a dress rehearsal with mostly school aged kids in attendance). It was a great show though.

WHAT?!?!? They re-wrote Shakespeare?!?

Tragedy: the principals die.

Comedy: they all get hitched.

So what did you wear?

I guess you could refer to our attire as 'sunday best.' Basically what we wear to our jobs every day.

And yes, it ended after Romeo was exiled. Rather abrupt.
