Velvet Reading Glasses and Opera
Velvet Reading glasses and Opera can be a passionate mix of drama, colour, joy, life, love and solely in the case of Opera sometimes tragedy and death. Reading glasses have been worn by the great Opera composers. Lets take a look at one and then explore our range of dramatic reading glasses you will want to take to the Opera to read your program with.
A trip to Lucca and Puccini`s reading glasses.
Judith and I love to travel and often to Italy. We both have a love of Opera and in particular the Opera`s of Puccini so it was a no brainer to take a trip to Lucca home of the great composer. At the time there was a Puccini festival. We booked tickets to see Madame Butterfly on the lake. We decided to make a day of it and left the Hotel Villa Principessa where we were staying and drove to Torre Del Lago.
Torre del Lago is a village in the municipality of Viareggio, in the province of Lucca, and here Giacomo Puccini lived for 30 years. It was here, in his house on the lake, that he wrote his major works, including Tosca (1900), Madame Butterfly (1904), La Fanciulla del West (1910), La Rondine (1917) and another favourite of ours Il Trittico (1918).
Not far from his house stands the spectacular open-air theatre which each year welcomes the biggest names in international Opera and we very fortunately would be among the people that evening to watch Madame Butterfly.
On the promenade of the lake stands the Villa Puccini Museum which was the house in which Puccini lived. We were able to join a small group of like minded people and took a tour of the house. You might be asking where reading glasses come into this. Well on the tour we passed Puccini`s desk where he wrote his Master pieces and there on the desk was his Reading Glasses !
After an early evening meal at the aptly named Madame Butterfly restaurant we went to watch the Opera and despite quite heavy rain enjoyed every minute of it and then drove back to our hotel.
