On Saturday April 30th I will be attending the opening night of Vancouver Opera’s performance of La Traviata. Yes I am excited about seeing Sir Jonathan Miller direct Guiseppe Verdi’s most popular opera but at this time I have a much more pressing question or concern on my mind; whatever shall I wear to this opera?!
I have an awesome new pair of cowboy boots to wear; all I will say about them for now is that they are black and the hide they are made from is not endangered. The real issue though, I have no suit to wear with my boots. And admittedly, I no longer look as good in my birthday suit as I did in days gone by, so please, do not even go there.
I am thinking of a deep red, maybe a burgundy brocade fabric for my suit. I want something outrageous. Something fabulous. Something wild. Think Don Cherry.
Where to find such a beast of a suit in the next two weeks? Anyone have any help for me? Please?
