After errands, we went to the Larcomar cinema down the street and saw the Metropolitan Opera Live in HD presentation of The Merry Widow, with Renee Fleming, Nathan Gunn, Kelli O’Hara and Alek Shrader. Spanish supertitles, but the opera was in English! Our lucky day. So does Nathan Gunn look more like George Clooney or Castle?

merry widow sm2It was an excellent performance, one of those events where you don’t really need to enjoy opera to appreciate the music, singing, dancing and all-around fun. You leave the theater humming.

We met our friends Mario and Carmela and their daughters Alicia (7) and Silvia (1 1/2). It was our first meeting with Silvia and today they were a contrast. Alicia was as full of words as ever while Silvia was quietly observing all that went on.

Dinner at Ko Asian Kitchen in Larcomar. Nothing to write home about.
