Today we took the train from Budapest back to Vienna because tonight we had tickets to a concert at the Vienna Opera House. The concert was by the opera singer Edita Gruberova.
The performance was quite extraordinary. I enjoyed it immensely. Here you can see the people in the standing room section. You can’t buy standing room tickets in advance. People line up the afternoon before the show.
Ms. Gruberova sang a variety of songs for 35 minutes. Then there was a 25 minute intermission. She sang for another 30 minutes or so and then there were at least 6 encores.
