I’ve really wanted to attend one of the Metropolitan Opera HD live broadcasts so when I recently learned that the critically acclaimed production of Bellini’s La Sonnambula was on the schedule I was thrilled. Natalie Dessay is one of my very favorite performers and I was curious to see Mary Zimmerman’s staging.
Unfortunately (and because I’m an idiot), my excitement didn’t translate into action. It didn’t occur to me until now that it might be a good idea to buy tickets in advance. You know, like you would for a LIVE performance of a ONE DAY ONLY production. Checking the Fandango website I see it’s sold out. Probably has been for weeks. Duh. Duh. And double duh.
Well, now I know better for next time. And I just gained three hours back on Saturday. Bother.
