When the going gets Scheme-y, get Scheme-ier…And if a Count takes you a for a fool, triple-fool-em and transgress sartorial norms if ya can. Watch out for the groping. There’s a whole lotta groping.
Alien Spouse, Alien In-Laws, and KickAss-Friend-Who-I-Forgot-to-Ask-For-Her-Preferred-Blog-Psuedonym-but-We’ll-Go-with -Either-Cherubino- or- She-Bear*…Well, we all ate some tasty Indian food downtown before heading to The Empire for The Scottish Opera’s touring production of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro.

Sadly, there was only one show to watch, the opera. Both Empire Box seats were empty. No illustrious personages to face the audience, perform their illustriousness and side-eye the whole show (illustriously) to the entertainment of all. The Empire decor is sumptuous, gratuitous, gorgeous Louis XVI style. Pink paint and white-grey marble. Scratched red velvet and idyllic flora.
