a night at the opera...


Trevor and I had the opportunity to go to the opening night of the Opera in Salt Lake City this past Saturday! It was IL Trovatore Opera at the Capitol Theater. The theater was stunning and we had amazing seats, all the ingredients you need to enjoy a great show. I have always been a big fan of musicals and was excited to go to my first Opera. The entire show was in Italian and the voices on these singers were incredible. The story was very entertaining, with dramatic twists throughout the story line. 

To make the night even better I ran into some other wonderful blogging ladies! It was fun to share the night not only with my hot date but some great girls - all dressed to the nines might I add. For those wondering, I am wearing a sparkly number by Michael Kors. You should check out what the other girls are wearing and get to know them. Somehow I missed getting a picture of Gentri and  Amanda!
 
Trevor and I had eaten very quickly before the show, but were starving when it ended. So we decided to go to the Cheesecake Factory since it was still open and right there at City Creek. Who eats dinner at 11:00 p.m.? Apparently a lot of people actually, haha. The whole night felt like we were back in 2008, staying up late, never wanting the night to end. Maybe it was being in Salt Lake City again, where all the magic happened to begin with. We didn't get home until 1:00 in the morning and wondered if we were already getting too old to stay up that late :) It was such a great night, and a wonderful date that I got to share with Trevor. Love him.

  2. Sounds SO fun!! I start yawning at 9:30, even on the weekends. It's ridiculous. We were proud to stay up until 11:30 last Friday night. Geez, by the time I turn 27 in a couple months I'll be hitting the hay at 8:45! ha!

  10. I also love musicals, so I've always wanted to go to the opera. I went once when I was 15, but I was a little too young to fully appreciate it, so I'm excited to hopefully go again someday.

    You look beautiful, btw!

    1. They actually had a little screen placed right above the stage with subtitles! So the show would have probably been much more enjoyable if I knew Italian and didn't have to look up every so often to read it haha BUT with that said, it takes so long for them to sing what it is they are actually saying, you can still enjoy the show and not feel like you are reading it the WHOLE time, did that make sense?! &I love your blog header! Such a great picture :) I am totally following you!

  30. Glad you had fun! That's so sweet that you kind of reminisce about when you lived in Salt Lake. I would love to go to the opera someday!
