DAY 15, JUNE 8: “SWAN LAKE” AT VIENNA STATE OPERA

Elizabeth and I had seen this ballet once before in Phoenix, Arizona. But this performance was simply stunning in all respects – the quality of dancers, the choreography, the costumes, the orchestra – all superlative.

At the end of our trip, Elizabeth rated this evening as a five-star, her #1 experience overall.

We even had a front row seat on the balcony. What an unexpected treat!

Afterwards we had a plebeian meal – a bratwurst with bread and mustard at a popular local stand opposite the Opera. Yum!
