or La Boheme or am I pushing it here?

no babyitter and he likes classical music. Do you think they are suitable for a 9 year old?

Carmeen rther than la boheme - it's more exciting imo

Done so!

lol! Thanks for that. ds is very easy going and so confident that he puts me to shame so you are welcome to both or either. It is very embarassing! I shall give you a call tomorrow.

I have taken children of that age to Ellen Kent operas before. However it has been because they have taken part in Act One and their parents want to watch the whole opera.

They are big spectacular productions and depending on the child they may be fascinated.

My 7 year old might be in it next year at one of the venues if I pick her and I may let her watch the rest.

So. Ds has decided to go to Megazone instead with his friend and his friend has booked him a ticket. I'm not happy about him going as his friends mum is not going to be there (his friend's 11, knows the staff and mum's contactable via phone). ds is asthmatic by the way.

Pan's not going to the opera now so do I go alone/sit in the cafe at Megazone?
