Best seats in the house

Another busy day yesterday, and we went straight from the cycling to the opera. We went to see The Magic Flute at the Coliseum, and sat on the dress circle front row, just to the side of the stage .
Obviously, we wouldn't have paid full price for this luxury, but many months ago Darren bought two 'secret seats'. This meant that we didn't know where we would be sitting, so thank you to the management for their excellent choice for us.
The opera was very confusing although it was very cleverly done. The time flew by and the craziness of the story didn't really matter. Beautiful singing by the Queen and a very entertaining bird catcher called Papageno. Also I liked the bits where the whole orchestra stood up and used their sheet music to pretend to be birds.
It doesn't sound good, but you had to be there to appreciate it.
Ps, finally, a little mention has to go to baby Rex. Darren has just become a great uncle and here they are meeting for the first time. Thanks to Deni and Mark for making all of this possible!
