We had another wonderful experience at an opera in the
Verona arena. We saw "Nabucco" and the people
clapped so much after the singing of the famous
chorus, that they sang it again, right then. It
started to rain and they delayed the opera after the
first act. I was sure they were going to cancel it but
about two hours later, they started the second act.
They didn't want to disappoint 18,000 people. We
didn't get out till two o'clock in the morning but all
the restaurants in the area were open if we wanted
anything. But we were too tired. Just walked back to
Sandy from New Orleans
