    Default Is anyone else going to La Traviata at La Scala opening night on Saturday?

    Alas, I'm just going to see the transmission at my local cinema in Malta. I assume it will be broadcast in many other places too. Perhaps we can compare notes if you're also going?

    If it's going to be not too cold I think I will watch it from the big screen they are going to place in the Galleria, between La Scala and Duomo Square (is there anybody else from Milan or nearby? we could meet).

    Otherwise I will watch it on TV. On channel RAI 5, Italian Television.

    I am not very fond of La Traviata anyway...

    Any information about possible online broadcast would be appreciated. I don't think I can watch RAI on my TV.

    I've found this: http://www.arte.tv/guide/fr/050902-001/la-traviata

    The video is not working, I suppose it will be the transmission there when the time comes? Well, it better be, it would be awkward to sit with popcorn and get ready and they find out... that... IT'S IN VAIN

    I don't know where you are, but it is being shown Central European Time 20.15. (19.15 in Britain).

    At 6:15 in our cinema an usherette stepped forward and announced... no idea except we caught the word 'refund'. Some kind of technical glitch I guess. Oh well, I Puritani from Paris on Monday.

    Watching an Italian opera in Italy... I would rather gut my own grandchildren and eat them.

    Am I missing something? Is this supposed to be funny?
