La Bohéme. Thirteenth row. Prague’s old opera house, a stately house from the 1800s. The music was lovely, the singers captivating, and my date enjoyed her first glimpse of opera … and saw one of its finest. It was fun playing dress up, too. Champagne at half time (can you call opera intermissions “half time” or is that too Chicago?), a nice coffee at the famous Hotel Europa’s kavarna (art deco interior), where a pianist played Joplin ragtime.
