Speaking of the audience for early Baroque opera
But they come with side dishes, all adding up to ~£3,000. I wonder what do the “free vaporetto journeys, daily lectures, three dinners, interval drinks and much else besides” amount to, because I for one don’t particularly care about any of that? I’d love to simply see the operas within a week in Venice (because, as they say “there is a special frisson arising from hearing music in appropriate historic buildings and in the place for which it was written”). In fact, what attracted me to it was the prospect of seeing only one. But apparently you need to book the whole thing.
