Rik and I went to the third in our series of operas this year. (Three operas for $99 a ticket? That's a no-brainer.)
We saw Attila, Orpheus et Eurydice, and this week the crowning glory of Madama Butterfly. It was an opportunity for me to wear my antique Japanese michiyuki. It's a raincoat meant to be worn over a kimono. I would have bought a kimono, but really you have to wear all the pieces to look proper, and that was more than I could afford. So I bought the michiyuki and wear it over a black top and tights.
