Teatro alla Scala – Milan Opening Night May 6th
Teatro Massimo – Palermo, Sicily
Passione secondo Giovanni
Music by Johann Sebastian Bach
The first of three operas I was fortunate enough to attend on my current travels abroad. Teatro Massimo is the largest theatre in Italy and the third largest opera house in Europe although it may be best known because the final scenes of the Godfather III were filmed here.

We took the water ferry from Amalfi to Positano and back today. Positano was filled with tourists and the excitement of First Communion at the lovely Chiesa du Santa Maria Assunta. For lunch we enjoyed a local wine before our journey back to Amalfi.
Whilst I sit overlooking the Mediterranean and the town of Amalfi I now have time to reflect on my time in London last week enjoying London Photo. There was a wonderful exhibition at the Brazilian Embassy “The Last Hunters” photographed by Domenico Pugliese. The links below are well worth the read.
