Date Night - La Traviata

 Catania's Teatro Bellini is a real jewel.

 Look at the panorama from our nose bleed seats!

All that red velvet and glittering gold. The chandeliers and frescoed ceiling. The rising floor of the orchestra, lifting them up from below ground at the start of the show. And the acoustics. The theater's design ensures that no matter where you sit, you can hear every note that rings out from the stage.

The nose bleed seats lack leg room. But that means you get to cozy up to your partner during the show.

Between each act there is a substantial pause, about 30 minutes, guaranteeing that you never get home before midnight. Always makes me feel like a grown up.

And the show was a huge success.
