Last thursday, which was the 25th of February 2010 AD, the Lomographic Embassy to Paris invited to a very special occasion: Une Soirée à l’Opéra le plus petit du monde de Paris. Which means “An Evening at the World’s Smallest Opera of Paris”.
Celebrating the Viennese Lomographic Festival, his Excellence the Ambassador prepared six pieces of delicious Apfelstrudel with his own bare hands. Apples were peeled and cinnamon was grinded the night before. Why did he do this? because the next evening, the tiny Lomography Boutique turned into the worlds petitest Opera House. The special guest for this very formal and stiff occasion was the divine Marie Charlotte Laborne, an opera singer of trade. She gave a truly amazing debut at the shop, singing some of Mr Franz Schubert’s Greatest Hits in immaculate German, followed by witty Italian Airs de Chambre.
We have done quite a lot of Parties here, most of them with fabulous musicians. But the Laborne had the crowd literally speechless with her unpaired performance. Accompanied by the always reliable Panasonic RX-DS45 Boombox, she had people smirking and then almost weeping with a very intelligent choice of pieces.
After the classic handover of the Bouquet of Flowers to the Diva: Deeeeelicious Apfelstrudel! As it turned out, it was so delicious that we do not have any pictures of it. All the photographers were so indulged in eating it, that none snapped a memory of the pies. Dommage!
