This note is written on the next day your writer has seen the Opera in Hamburg State Opera House. Hamburg Opera House was an increadible place. Performance was extraordinary. You could see the creme de creme social strata of upper upper class of Hamburg population, ladies were all in their expensive decent night dresses and men with dark black business suits. Average age was above 50. Approximately in six hours in 3 acts, they had 120 artists at the stage plus approximately 60 players in the orcestra. A large parter plus 4 balconies. My younger son and your humble writer were on the second balcony. We were in great pleasure to be there between 17-23 hours and almost shocked by the performance we have visualised. It was an extraordinary event.
