    Is it the same Guillaume Tell there was all the kerfuffle about in London?

    I don't think so. The Met one is Pierre Audi

    (love or hate; I think our friend from Amsterdam is not so keen but I like what I've seen)

    Clayton is right - the Met's is a new production that is premiering this fall.

    I had an invite to join some old friends (whom I haven't seen in 20 or so years - we have sort of reconnected via Facebook), but haven't heard anything since June, so guess I will go ahead and buy a ticket and then try and connect with them separately.

    Yeah, if you want a decent seat, I'd get something sooner rather than later. It seems to be selling significantly better than the other shows I looked at.

    And yeah, the Pierre Audi production premiered in Amsterdam in 2013. The production design looks great to me!

    Despite my better judgement - I've been running around so much this summer that I sometimes think it would be nice to stay home for awhile - I'm leaving again on Wednesday for Croatia, followed by Berlin and Munich for a pair of Die Meistersinger performances, but then, there seems to be so many things to do, I can't resist.

    So... Added to my list are:

    Guillaume Tell 25 October @ Metropolitan Opera (unfortunately, this is the one performance without Bryan Hymel, with John Osborn substituting)
    and
    L'Italiana in Algeri 26 October @ Metropolitan Opera

    I'd rather hear John Osborn than Bryan Hymel any day.

    Not likely. I don't arrive in Munich until 9/29 - Oktoberfest still will be running - the hotel rate does, however, reflect Oktoberfest.

    I'm not sure about taking in any of the activities as I will be in what I call "training" for Die Meistersinger, which doesn't allow for anything more active than an afternoon nap and a double espresso before leaving for the theater.

    Yes you don't want to have to keep nipping to the loo every five minutes.

    Yes, I hadn't thought about the fact that hotels always raise their rates any time a major event is taking place in or near a particular city.

    I was very happy to have found a hotel within walking distance to the opera house (which also is very close to the famed Hofbrau Haus) - not many options either were available or affordable. Minimum of $400/night typical and didn't really want to find my way out to the 'burbs after the performance.

    Yes, it's not much fun trying to find your way back to the hotel late at night.

    I stayed here which was close to the opera house and Hofbräuhaus.

    From my bedroom window I could see this shop.







    As you can see it was piled high with stuff, DVDs, CDs, books etc and the owner was lovely!
