Budapest Opera

Budapest Opera

Saturday night was our night at the opera. Again, a fabulously opulent building with much gold and velvet in the lavish interior. The opera, Richard Strauss’ ‘Der Rosenkavalier’ was beautifully staged, with wonderful singing and nuanced acting. The costumes were fun – as Sophie asserts more independence from act to act, her costume changes from a stiff, corseted satin gown to a gorgeous turquoise chiffon “reform dress” with flowing Grecian lines popular among feminists in fin de siècle Vienna.
