Venice-La Fenice

Jump to last reply

I managed to get two tickets to what I think is the last La Traviata performance in July. I had given up even looking for anything since I mistakenly thought nothing of interest would be on stage so this is a nice surprise.

The house website has the usual "boilerplate" language about men wearing coats and ties and people "dressing appropriately." I've read the same stuff for Verona (it applies to the so-called "gold" seats particularly) as well as for Munich, La Scala, etc., etc.

I am wondering if anyone here has attended a performance within the past year or two. The coat and tie thing is easy enough to do but am curious as to what actually occurred.

I've noticed the dress mode has evolved in many places (much to the horror and understandable disappointment to those who dress up) and I fully expect the same at the Met next week.

Thanks for any input.
