I saw a competition to win two places for Tosca in the UGC Cinema.
Where is Tosca set ?
So I answered the question.
Then this afternoon, while discovering a super little place in the Chartrons called Paul's Place I got an email. "Bravo, you have won two places for Tosca this evening !"
I met Catrin from school but the poor thing was feeling unwell, so we abandoned the idea of going together and I went alone.
Called in at Flunch on the way for some chicken, beans and fruit salad. Then to the cinema.
Well it was splendid.
I mean, if you know the story, you'll know there's not that many laughs.
And most of the characters had a pretty bad evening. Few were left standing at the end, frankly.
But the music was enchanting. Tosca herself was perhaps just a tad old for her leading man - Cassassassadori (or something like that) but he didn't seem to be bothered.
The cinema was mostly occupied by oldies having a wonderful time eating "Petit Ecolier" biscuits.
Splendid. Thanks, Bordeaux 7 !
