On Saturday after work Lika and I went to see “Swan Lake” at the Tbilisi Opera House. I had not been in the Opera House for almost a decade. It’s been closed for 8 years for renovation. It was stunning, much brighter than I remember, with the chandeliers and the stained glass windows cleaned and the colors renewed. There are “portholes” that when you look through them, show you a little of the history of the venue. While I enjoyed the performance I enjoyed the venue more. Or perhaps I enjoyed all of the kids who wondered at both the ballet and the theater.
