La Fenice

Venice Opera

DSC02376.jpgIn John Berendt’s book The City of Falling Angels he writes about the mysterious fire that destroyed La Fenice opera house and nearly destroyed all of Venice. I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to see an opera while I was in Venice and see the magnificent renovation. La Fenice is a golden, sparkling treasure. If you go, be sure you are a buying a seat where you can see the stage. In Italian opera houses, many seats are available where you can’t see without standing and leaning over. It’s kind of like parts of Yankee Stadium. Buyer Beware!
