Tickets to Giuseppe Verdi's I Lombardi alla prima crociata
tonight. Only problem is, it is an Open Air opera festival, DomStufen-Festspiele
in Erfurt, the city where I work. And it has been raining a few weeks now, weather is really cold and forecast shows even colder and more rain for tonight.
DomStufen-Festspiele (literally Cathedral Steps Festival) is something special, scene built on the famous Erfurt Cathedral steps, stand in the Cathedral Square. As a fan of both city of Erfurt, the Dom (Cathedral), opera and especially Giuseppe Verdi, I am quite disappointed and sad at the moment. This was an evening we have been waiting for a long time but it seems to be pointless to go there for 3 hours to freeze and be wet.
