Macerata...Tuesday? Catching a Show

Well, I guess I'm getting this up rather late, seeing that it's no longer Monday. But the show must go on, so I bring you (drum roll please) Macerata TUESDAY! Does the fact that I'm not actually IN Macerata help my case at all? Anyway, just this once please excuse my lateness, and sit back and, well, enjoy the show.

I love taking pictures of our local theatre, Teatro Lauro Rossi, and I find it is one of Macerata's most perfect treasures. Perhaps the best part about it isn't hidden away to collect dust, but it's open to the public and always used as a show venue--Antonello and I see great shows there all of the time, and the tickets are surprisingly inexpensive! This photo, which I converted to black and white (I'd like to get the original color version over at flickr sometime soon...I'll update you once that's done), is from a jazz concert we saw in mid-January: I think it was actually the first concert in the popular jazz series that lasts until around April. There are all sorts of shows though--operas, theatre, dance, classical, even Italian pop singers come sometimes. One of the wonders of this region of Italy is that, from the smallest towns to the largest ones, there are beautiful theatres everywhere. You just have to search a little bit, and know the opening hours, to find them. I'd love to explore these theatres a little more, but I'm in no hurry. Teatro Lauro Rossi still has loads of shine, and plenty of shows, left to uncover.

Greetings from Indy, where it is SNOWING. Maybe I can get some pictures of that snow online soon. Surely Macerata is much warmer than here!

Oh I haven't done this forever and P was actually thinking we do this soon...

You might just get me going here...

I hope your time in the states is fun!

Geeze it's been a while... haven't been reading as much as I'd wished!
