Re: Cosi fan tutte / Mozart / Reduced prices

Prof, can I jump in on this deal? I was looking to get tickets online and I cant tell if they are available or not. I'll be in town with my mom and we are heading the next day to the Lucerne Festival for opening night. this would be the feather in the cap. Any two would be appreciated....

For these events tickets are only available one month prior to the show. I will try to get our places on the first date ticketing is available around the 23rd of February. I will also send my account details to everyone who has subscribed beginning of February to make payment directly to me. Tickets for the 2nd and 3rd class are also very good, f.e. in the boxes they are just in the 2nd or 3rd row.

Thank you so much for taking care of this. Wired 140 CHF for two tickets, but will honestly take whatever you get your hands on in case you need to redistribute. Again a really class move on your part putting this together.

We gonna rock the house!

I'm just waiting for my favorite opera, Mascagnis "Cavalleria Rusticana".
Quote:
View Post


Cavalleria Rusticana is very cool, I saw it in Milan a few years ago.

My absolute favorite is this, it was the first opera I saw as a kid many years ago, and the emotions never left me. Here in a wonderful version by Maria Callas.

This opera is coming back to Verona in Summer 2012 - as MariaMaria said, if I am alive, I shall be there! EF field trip?

Thankf Prof. for organizing!

I just asked my hubby(he is AN opera-goer), he is now playing it. errrrrr...
Fortunately(?) for me, he couldn't get many opera tickets here in Switzerland. When he arrived here the very first thing he done was checking the website for tickets. But most of tickets were sold out. lol.
In London he was a member of royal opera house which enabled him to book his ticket earlier than public sale and even a famile member.
Happiest moment for me was when Royal Opera House closed for holidays in summer time. Don't get me wrong. It is ok and sometimes enjoyable but having it too often wasn't.


In Verona, seat must be selected carefully otherwise you will be grilled.


We also were in Milan for one of Verdi's Opera played by Placido Domingo. But for me, it wasn't cool.
Why? at that time there was volcano eruption, so no flight technically to nowhere from UK(it was a total disaster!). Our flight was cancelled but he was determined to go. So he bought Eurostar tickets to Paris n overnight in Paris and then, train to Lyon, Geneva and Milan.

It was pretty hectic even on our way back there was no flight so took a train(harder to get we managed to get tickets but missed it in Nice but managed to get on other train, normally wasn't possible to hop on other train with tickets weren't designed to travel on that train, but at that time, worst for many, workers union(?) in France(beside volcano eruption!!) were on strike. Many trains were cancelled. So exception to the rule, tickets for the same destination, were allowed to travel on other trains.

Yeh, everywhere was packed by people to get hold of tickets if there was any(fully booked again for most of destinations) even rental cars were Fully booked up. Worst of all I nearly got into physical(?) fight with a staff at Nice after he made some rubbish remarks but then, I was dragged out of station by my hubby at the point I was about to punch him. I was near eruption after all. It was a minute that I got so angry. Not only from his remarks but full incidents I had for 2 days.
My hubby doesn't like arguing with people or get angry at people, especially on the street in public, he'd rather let it go n forget.

However, a nightmare wasn't finished here. When we arrived in Lille, there was no hotel rooms nearby station. And the last thing, after checked-in, my hubby wanted was to have brekkie in the room. He couldn't have that in the room brekkie as I didn't allow(?) him to hv that luxury after these disasters!!!

Back to journey, after a night we took a train to Calais then Dover by ferry and London by train. Then, my hubby went to work straight away.
I told him if he was ever gonna do this kind of thing, he could do only over my dead body.


Funny enough, only thing he complained was the brekkie he couldn't have. The most Romantic thing according to him, What the heck!!!

Your offer is very good but I am NOT telling him about it.

That is a brilliant idea, as Crumbs said!!! I hope I won't scare my OH too much when I will be singing "these boots are made for walking..."

On second thought, if he was gonna be scared, he should have been scared already a long time ago!

Re: Cosi fan tutte / Mozart / Reduced prices

I only saw this event on EF today as I don't visit the website so often. Would have definitely signed up for it if I had caught it earlier.

Hope you will organize this again so that I can join next time.

Have a great time there, whoever is going
