FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AT SLAM – PART 2
This is a date sequence that will not happen again until January 2, 2103 — 01/02/03 … a day I think I’m going to miss.
Anyway, I arrived at the holiday decorated building shortly after it opened on Saturday morning because I was going to see the six-hour Live In HD broadcast of the Metropolitan Opera’s classic production of Wagner’s Meistersinger von Nüremberg in three acts with two 45-minute intermissions.
As you can see from the photo is was a classic full-scale production that totally filled the Met’s stage. And it was glorious! It’s easy to watch a six-hour production when you’re sitting in the comfortable seats of the Art Museum’s Farrell Auditorium with stereo surround sound and high-definition video projection. And there’s lots of leg room between the rows of seats!
And I got through all three acts without dozing off! It was a total experience of a lifetime! And as I walked out of the museum (at five o’clock) I was even able to get a photo of the Museum in its after dark illumination.
Despite what you might have heard on the national news recently, Saint Louis is a beautiful and friendly place to not only live, but also to visit.
And everyone is welcome here!
