In the first of this new salon series, "Salon Cultural Excursions"we will attend the Royal Opera House to see Verdi's tragedy Simon Boccanegra. Before the opera we will meet to discuss the historical context, philosophical themes, composer's biography, and any other relevant background information. After the opera we will meet for a drink to discuss our impressions of the performance.
