Divas meet Divas: What to wear to the opera?
Our co-worker Jonathan is a true Renaissance man: a body builder who plays saxophone, speaks Croatian and, I recently learned, sings opera! Recently, Jonathan invited me to hear him sing bass in a performance of Lucia Di Lammermoor.Deal Diva Letitia is coming, too, along with both our husbands.
The show is Nov. 20-22 at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, 1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Regularly priced tickets start at $29.50, but by using the code BRIDE when you register, you can get $69.50 orchestra or mezzanine seats for only $15.00.
So I'm going to the opera for the first time. Whatever shall I wear? No seriously, what do people wear to these things? Gloves? A church hat? A cape? Or should I take my cues from Flava Flav?
Actor Leelee Sobieski showed off her baby bump in this red-hot number.
New York socialite Julie Macklowe looked like she was going to a birthday party... for Pamela Anderson.
Martha Stewart got into a fight with her glitter pen. And lost.
Opera soprano Renee Fleming, who must know a thing or two about dressing for these occasions, chose a black and white gown. I think I know where I can find something like that.
