One of the few remaining buildings at Lincoln Center I haven't had the pleasure of visiting yet, I'm so glad I got to yesterday! I saw my very first Opera as well! Hansel and Gretel, which was a delight! The building is beautiful, the chandeliers are exquisite! We didn't realize until half way through the show, how the captions worked, because despite being sung in English, Opera is still pretty hard to understand! haha But once we did, it got even better! I'll be practicing my scales for the rest of the week! A true NYC staple and the cheap seats are only $35, so kind of steal for world class Opera!


The met today was fantastic, So creative. Great voices. Great acting. I''m still singing.
