Have you ever been to the opera? Years ago you may have thought that it was only for those who had 'highbrow' interests, whatever they are, and some may have thought it was elitist but today opera has become more accessible than ever.
A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to win a meal for Valentines day at the Millenium Centre in Cardiff. We were serenaded by singers from the Welsh National Opera. It made for a lovely and memorable meal, and since then the idea of going to the opera has appealed to me more than ever.
It can be exciting but perhaps a tiny bit nerve wracking going for the first time. You may be concerned about what to wear for example. Years ago the dress code used to be formal but today a simple smart dress code will suffice. Wear what you would wear out for a nice meal is my advice, the only time you would need to wear an evening gown would be at a world premier of a new opera.
