Last night I finally got to go to the ballet! The Royal Ballet. One of my friends had an extra ticket, so along I went to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.
Unfortunately my friend prides himself on living “off the grid,” so I can’t show you a picture of him or tell you his name. As that’s the case, I’ll be referring to him as Kyle Reese.
We got there just in time to have a big ol’ glass of wine, pre-show. What I really wanted was a Bellini, but at £13 a cocktail, I had to say no to myself. I have an issue with ordering drinks, so a lot of times I’ll pay if someone else will go to the bar in my place.
The Opera House was gorgeous. I can’t believe I haven’t been here before in my three years in London.
Drinks for Kyle and me.
Our seats were high, but the place really isn’t that big so it was fine. The difference between our ticket price and those in front of the stage was about £200. We paid £9 per seat.
My only concern was that I’d drop my iPhone on someone’s head and it would be the whole “drop a penny off the Empire State Building” thing.
I love activities. Like Will Ferrell in Step Brothers. So many activities. It’s making my head spin!
