Finally ordered the tickets, after a bit of a mix-up, but I'll have to wait for the Encore performance of Tosca. There are five of us going, and one has a birthday coming up; her daughter is planning a surprise birthday party for her, on the same day of the live simulcast. I knew about the party; I'm going to it. But I forgot the date. So I had to think up a convincing lie to persuade her to change her ticket, for the later performance, and I had to swear the other three in our group to secrecy about the party to get them to change, etc. Ah, me.
