I Gondolieri


Zefferelli's "Aida" in Verona

The image below is from Verona's Piazza Bra webcam, at about 6PM local time on Tuesday 6/6/06. (Yes, I know wayyyyy too much has been made of this date. I'm not paying too much attention to it.)

When we were in Verona on May 25th, the set was in front of the Town Hall. As you can see, it's now right outside the Arena, where Verdi's beloved opera has been performed every summer for a good many years.

This year "Aida" premieres on June 25th.
