Tonight Vancouver Opera opens their run of Mozart’s most magnificent final opera, La Clemenza di Tito. And I will be there, live-blogging for your benefit. Unless you choose to come to the opera and see it with me.
The question of the day then, what boots will I wear this evening when I go to see La Clemenza di Tito? When I saw Lucia di Lammermoor I was wearing my Dayton Drivers with the white heel. For Lillian Alling I wore my understated black Boulets.
Tonight which pair of boots will walk me into the Queen Elizabeth Theatre? I will give you a hint; yesterday I visited Big Mike my suit guy at Moores. He threw his arms around me (with a measuring tape in hand) to get my measurements and said, “C’mon over here.”
In no time at all he had me in a new blazer, shirt and a very striking new tie. I told him I wanted to make a splash at the opera; make it loud. I think he has succeeded.
