    Nor entirely. They both have same origin - ancient Greek drama, reincarnated in renesaince Italy.

    Yes, you absolutely should. Dark suit and tie will be invaluable for opera as well as dinner at fancy restaurants.

    Want to shift your mindset a bit. There are plenty of people in jeans there. Same as the Met. You want to dress for the occasion and remember that it is, in fact, an occasion. I have worn a suit there and worn an odd jacket and been fine. Plenty were in tuxedos and plenty were in jeans. Dress to your level of reverence for the artistic medium.

    Interesting link Veremund. Thanks for posting.

    Based on what is in those photos, my traditional 1BPL black tie rig will be out of place only in the sense that it won't be fashion-forward enough for a night there, and my chances of getting photographed are slim to none. Fine by me :)

    I'm not worried about looking like a tourist in BT when we go.....
