Dinner With Friends Before The Opera.

Woke up late in Olympia… the usual state after a dinner at Curt’s place – home by noon so laze around the day until heading to Wonderful’s place to catch a ride to the opera. Easier to park one car on Queen Anne than three if we all drove separately.

Dinner at Tom Tuk Thai, or something like that – too lazy to look it up, but it’s on Mercer with a name something like that.

Free opera ticket for me tonight in my usual seat that only cost me $65 in cocktails (pre-show, and both intermissions).

And what did we see you might ask? Lucia di Lammermoor.

Murder, madness, and melodies permeate this exhilarating, high-drama masterpiece. Complete with secret rendezvous, political intrigue, a duel at dawn, and the most famous mad scene in opera, Lucia remains Donizetti’s most popular work and one of the most thrilling evenings Italian opera can offer.

And this quote from the Seattle Weekly on the production:

Blood and stripping in a fearless mad scene….

So that’s my pre-Halloween, filled with blood and stripping. How appropriate.
