    All thanks are due to you and Eli, Barbara. It was organized wonderfully well and I had a glorious time. Serving Mimosas compensated for the early start! All those extra goodies were enjoyed and appreciated.

    When I got home I had an e-mail from a good friend who was at the performance with her husband, but not part of our group. They went backstage after the opera and talked to Sondra. Sondra said the performance we saw was special. She is off for the next two weeks, so put everything into the Friday night performance.

    The event was well organized and well run. Great people at the event, and a great performance.

    October 19, 2013

  • Eli L.

    At this point, everyone who has paid and is coming should have all the logistics info to catch the bus in the morning. If anyone who is coming does not know what they are supposed to do tomorrow morning, please let me know!

      Y'all have a grand time! I will wish I were there... ;D

      I wish you were "there", too.

      October 17, 2013

  • Alan T.

    This has been so long in coming, but tomorrow's finally the day. I'm taking metro from Shady Grove to Union Station, and hopefully a wheel won't fall off. Don't want to be stuck in a tunnel tomorrow.

    Hi All

    No more reservations can be taken. We have 41 opera lovers on the bus. Stay tuned for our next event!

    I'm trying to decide what to do about dinner on Friday. I could pick a restaurant and make a reservation for just myself, but would prefer tagging along with others, for company. That is sort of hard to arrange since I don't really know any of the people going on this trip. I guess my question is whether there are others in the same situation, who would like to go to eat as a group?

      Barbara - see if you can add mom & me - it will be more fun. If you can I will cancel the other place - jlk

      October 10, 2013

    • Barbara J.

      I'll call Ed's tomorrow.

      October 10, 2013

  • Cathy

    who ever has room for one more person for dinner can I come. cathy

    October 9, 2013

  • Eli L.

    We have one person who paid for their ticket and then had a personal situation arise so they can't attend Norma now.

    Would anyone who is not already signed up for the trip be interested in this ticket/trip? It is a package includes a private room and an orchestra ticket. The cost would be $458 for an orchestra seat (Orchestra Prime), single hotel room, and the bus ticket.

    If so, let Barbara or I know!

  • Julie K.

    Looking forward to the itinerary!!!

    September 30, 2013

  • Barbara J.

    That just means we will be back mid day. No "official" lunch is planned. Sorry for the confusion. Complete itinerary will be ready in a day or so.

    September 27, 2013

  • Cathy

    I might skip on the lunch when we come back.

    September 27, 2013

  • Alan T.

    Please reserve me a single Orchestra seat. Thanks.

    Tentative yes, as haven't gotten my shooting schedule yet.

    June 27, 2013

  • Cathy

    I am willing to share a bed room

    1 · June 19, 2013

  • Eli L.

    By the way, if you were thinking of coming and looking for a roommate for Friday night, we have one male and one female attendee who are both looking to share a room. Send an email to Barbara at [masked] if you are interested in sharing a room or if you would come on the trip with us if you could split a room!

    June 19, 2013

  • Laurie C.

    Really looking forward to this.

    June 19, 2013

  • Eli L.

    Cathy, absolutely ok! You'll make friends on the trip :-) Send an email to [masked] to make arrangements to pay.

    Jill, nothing has changed. Even the option to stay another night was there before, but it is just emphasized a bit more. Since we are going to be in NYC anyways for Norma, some of us (ok, me) are going to probably stay to not only see Eugene Onegin on Saturday evening, but also catch the 1pm matinee of Britten's A Midsummers Night Dream.

    Vicki, have you sent an email to Barbara?

    June 19, 2013

  • Noel M.

    So sorry. I cannot make it to this trip.

    June 19, 2013

  • Cathy

    How do we pay, I don't know any one is it still ok to come

    June 19, 2013

  • Jill R.

    What has changed--other than adding the option to stay another night?
