The Marriage of Figaro

I saw my second opera last Thursday, "The Marriage of Figaro" by Mozart. The singing was nice {although, in Italian so who knew what exactly was being said} and the actors were comical, but what I really loved was putting my 'History of Costume' knowledge into actions; I saw crevats, breeches and watteau gowns, among other things. Good job, college.

On a side note:
I am interviewing fashion bloggers for my Anthropology of Fashion and Desirability final project in which I am studying the impact of the fashion blogging community on the fashion world. If you are interested in participating, please let me know and I will e-mail you the interview straightaway. The more participants, the better!

Also, why must you rain all week Florence? Why?

We studied The Marriage of Figaro in my music and revolutions course in college. We mainly focused on music of the French revolution, and it wasn't my favorite class... but now I have an appreciation for it.

Abbie - That's great! I just know that the music itself was very pretty...I sort of wish I knew what they were saying, but would rather learn French now than Italian!
