Oh yeah, that’s my boyfriend and his open shirt in the Met’s production of Il Trovatore, which I am seeing tonight. My mom and I have always wanted to see one of the live Met broadcasts to movie theaters, but the live date of this ended up being Skyler’s birthday and we both decided we’d be too distracted checking for updates. Fortunately, the Met re-broadcasts them.

I haven’t spent time with Dmitri since I re-watched Eugene Onegin at the end of March (which is both a good and a bad thing to do if you’re railing against fate), so I am excited to go from really dramatic Russian drama to really melodic Italian drama. And for the chance to see more of him in his tunic.
