I'm almost as old as Leonard. Does that count? All you that are going to Venice, I am so glad for you, enjoy, and I hope you have beautiful weather!

The ticket office may have issued some more - they are flexible with the rows! Ask them.

Hi everyone, being in Venice yesterday it has been like to be in a fairy tale, the weather was orrible when we got to Venice, a strong thunderstorm, a bunch of water that stopped something like 30 minutes before the beginning, then more then two and a half hours of music.

meraviglioso.
