A couple of weeks ago I went with a friend to see Carmen performed at the Baths of Caracalla. It was a lovely setting, though I didn't have time to look around much since I arrived just minutes before the start. And this was a great chance to see the Baths, which otherwise are kind of a second tier sight that takes some extra effort to visit.
As for the opera itself it was fun. They did a modern take on the story, set in a Mexican border town in fact. While I enjoyed it I do tend to prefer the elaborate costumes and sets from traditional opera. But I did get this great shot to make all the DHS colleagues at the Embassy smile. (Isn't that sign in some way proprietary?)
