Was very pleased with the kind efficiency with which the Hawaii Opera Theatre exchanged our Friday night opera season tickets; the Wizard has an engagement that trumps Wagner -- imagine that!-- so we needed to swap our tickets if possible. So instead of a late night Friday, we can get an early start on Die Walkure at 4 p.m. Sunday. Not exactly a night at the opera, but certainly a more civilized time to get home.
And all just as well. Tonight in the mail, a notice from HOT advising all holders of the Friday tickets to be sure and get to the theatre to park early; the lot is expected to be jammed with people attending a Bon Jovi concert (not the Wizard's event) at the big arena adjacent to the opera hall. I have reasonable doubt that the Bon Jovi ticket holders got a similar warning.
I wonder if our regular opera seat neighbors will wonder if we decided to forgo Wagner for Bon Jovi. Well, we'll just catch up with them in two weeks, at La Boheme.
