It’s been an inspiring few weeks for me lately.the credit goes to the Summer season( read as the calendar month of May) without actually being the Summer.
It’s the season when the new exhibits pop up,the plays and musicals seem more available as people rather be out making the most of the daylight, The books you have been waiting for gets released, and finally the wait for Great Gatsby is over!
I have had the joy of seeing great exhibits starting with David Bowie,to Musicals like Once (I know!! The best birthday present ever! Only Once fans will understand that emotion.)
So it was just natural for me to say Yes,when I was Invited for the English National Opera’s latest production :The Perfect American.
I must be honest,I lived in Sydney and never actually managed to go to the Opera,so when I was invited for an Opera in London,I was well excited, and that too an ENO commission to celebrate the renowned composer of The Perfect American, Philip Glass’s 75th birthday.
Based on the novel by Stephan Jungk and written by Philip Glass, who is one of the most influential music makers of the late 20th century,The Perfect American imagines the final months of Walt Disney’s life, including mythical imaginings of Abraham Lincoln and Andy Warhol. One can only imagine the concoction of those two!
Glass describes himself a “Classicist” with a certain repeat structure in music, well I am no critic of Music, since I never studied it and have the worst hand-eye-ear co-ordination so physically incapable of playing any instrument but I am totally preparing myself for my first ever London Opera by listening to Glass’s music here.

Now the big question! What do I wear? So According to the Opera Etiquettes here, I don’t have a dress code, which is a relief, but One should never be underdessed…EVER!
So I decided to go unconventional with a Digital Printed dress and Summery Makeup! P.s: Loving the Nars Satin Lip Pencil currently, If you haven’t tried it, get your hands on it ASAP!
