That is RiGHT. WE went to an OPERA at the legendary Vienna State Opera House. Yes we did. And the 'seats' (being a place to stand and lean on a rail) were so incredibly good, and the usher was our own private guide to all things opera. One of her friends was there too and she was delightful as well.

Our guide from earlier in the day told us it was an important tradition in Vienna to make the arts available to everyone .. apparently including tourists because we were standing just behind the 200 euro seats and we paid 4.

The opera we saw was Arabella by Richard Strauss. Not a blockbuster for sure but the singers were very good as was the orchestra and the experience was to beat the band. Windy was particularly happy because Arabella is a love story and they all lived happily ever after.
