Prague and Classical MusicSaturday, April 07, 2012
I blogged about Prague a long while back (you may wish to click on the Prague 2011 label below for my past entries), but I forgot to mention...
I was fascinated by how the painting could portray sunlight streaming in from the window before bouncing off the face of the subject. It looked like a photograph! I can't begin to tell you how much I adore the interplay of light.
While we were in Prague, we booked tickets to Carmen at the Prague National Opera House. It was such a popular performance, almost all the seats were sold out, hence we were extremely lucky to get one of the last few box seats!
The performance was magnificent and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Here's a short clip of what the opera sounds like. I'm sure it's a tune that everyone would be familiar with!
