Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Flórez.
I was lucky enough to see a probably once-in-a-lifetime Carmen (yes, it was really that good) with Elīna Garanča (Carmen), Roberto Alagna (Don Jose) and Gábor Bretz (Escamillo).
Even the view from my hotel room window was pretty nice. Definitely way above brick-wall status, and I have to say I had a wonderful trip all in all.
While I was there I saw not only the 3 operas referenced above, but 2 musicals and a play on Broadway. Kinky Boots, Chicago, and It's Only A Play. They were all really good, and I'm glad I got the chance to see so many productions. Originally I was to leave Sunday, but my flight was cancelled because of weather, and so I had Sunday to see It's Only A Play.
I did some shopping besides fabric shopping, although I didn't do much buying other than fabric, etc. There will be a couple posts on fabric, and most of it is still en route to me since I had it shipped. Saves weight in your luggage.
