The concert included a number of old favorites like:
- West Side Story
- Rhapsody Blue
- An American in Paris
- My Fair Lady
The Spanish Synagogue was built in 1868 on the site of the Prague Jewish house of prayer (“the Od Shul“). It was designed in a Moorish style with a large dome surrounding the central space, with amazing stained glass windows. The interior decoration features stylized Islamic motifs which are applied to the walls, door and the gallery.
Prior to the concert we got into a lively discussion, swapping travel tales, with a couple of New Yorkers, now living in Colorado – they gave us some tips for avoiding altitude sickness (for another adventure).
Finally, we rounded the evening off with some excellent pizza, washed down with a couple of glasses of red wine – can’t take any more goulash and dumplings, washed down with beer!
- Prague update – recommended the goulash and dumplings to three French tourists from Lille (alfandmarilyn.wordpress.com)
