intermission at tredje raden (2)

...previously on pixels

From yesterday's Nobel festivities to another glimpse of the opera house. The current repertoire includes classics like the Barber of Seville, Bohéme and Tosca. A modern version of Cinderella sounds interesting. This photo is from an intermission in Samson and Delilah.

Were you in the nosebleed section by choice, or do you like to keep more money for other things, like I used to do in DC? :-)

Fantastic shot! The opera house looks absolutely stunning! So, the photo was taken before the haircut, right? :-)

Så vackert det är, jag längtar dit, varför går jag inte, är det för nära?

Funny really. I never listen to opera music while at home. It's got to be live or nothing, apparently.

Z: Good to hear from you! My seat was at a lower altitude but I decided to pay a visit just under the ceiling rather than drinking expensive coffee in the intermission.

JM: It is a stunning house and regardless of what they're playing there's a lot to see. Took a while before I figured out your haircut question (the need for haircuts is limited with my kind of hairstyle...;) I guess you're referring to the tragic hero Samson. And yes, this was before the haircut. Boy, was he in for an unpleasant treatment!

Lena Johansson: Så kan det vara. Jag går förbi ställen jag aldrig besöker i sta'n och utanför står det en buss från Jokkmokk. Ibland måste man bo en bit bort för att inse värdet.

Thanks for visiting!

JM said...

Yes, Per, I was referring to Samson! :-)))

Beautiful. Wish we had one of these. (Obviously impossible in a town of 7,000.)

Per Stromsjo said...

Opera can be surrealistic at times. Gruesome events wrapped up in heavenly music.

JM: As a matter of fact this particular hero has been subject to more recent tributes as well...

mkhansen: A manageable size of a town, I bet that has its advantages too!

Thanks.
