General rehersal

This is some kind of premiere... I had the enormous pleasure to go yesterday to the general rehersal of Ernani an opera composed by Giuseppe Verdi. The premiere is on the 17th march, so if you are in Buenos Aires and want to see it you can check out this webpage where you can find all sort of information of this opera company called "Buenos Aires Lírica" and get the adress where to buy the tickets (its being played at Teatro Avenida).
Ernani was inspired by Victor Hugo´s "Hernani" (1830) and was premiered for the first time in 1844 in the "La Fenice" theatre of Venice. The drama tells the unfornate story of "rebel" Ernani who is in love with Elvira, but his love is tainted with sorrow and death due to Carlos V and a spanish count Silva who want this woman for themselves. More about Ernani here.
I didn´t use flash nor trypod so I apologize for the picture being slightly blurry :)

Blur makes it more genuine. How is it you get to go to opera rehearsals?
