#29: See a live performance of Nessun Dorma, Figaro’s Aria, O Mio Babbino Caro or any other aria I feel strongly about.
Last week, I accompanied a merry band of second-year students on their trip to Budapest, where I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the city’s magnificent opera house.
If you take a tour of the building, you’re given the chance to have a 5-minute mini-concert at the main staircase.
Three guesses as to what aria our not-so-fat lady sang? Yup! O Mio Babbino Caro!
The only thing is… the music wasn’t live. So… does it count as a live performance?
I’m not ticking it off just yet! After all, I still have quite a few years to go. 😉
In the meantime, still working on many 40b40 list items (despite the dramatic lack of updates — apologies!). Promise!
