  1. As always, thank you for sharing! The late Romantic period is one of my favorites, but you’ve probably already realized that. 🙂 I’m excited this morning. My granddaughter and I are off to La Boheme today. Can’t wait!

      1. Yes, indeed. Just had my bath (sitting here in my robe LOL) and will be getting dressed soon. I even have a beautiful new shawl to wear. We must be fashionable to attend the opera, you know. LOL.
