I decided on my attire in advance for last night's performance of Giselle. Being curious as to the official stance, I checked the Royal Opera House website: "There is no dress code – feel free to dress up or down." I hoped the majority of attendees would choose the first option. When I arrived at Bow Street, Covent Garden, I was relieved to find my attire one amongst a sea of stylish options. Unfortunately, I did catch sight of one sorry human being outfitted in Uggs and sweatpants. The orchestra was wearing black tie and the conductor white for goodness' sake.
