A Night at the Symphony

Last Friday night we went on a date to the Teatro Nacional de Costa was my first time to the symphony...and I must say, it was a rather electrifying experience.
The National Symphonic Orchestra of Costa Rica performed Liszt and Mahler. They were just so good. So good.

The Teatro Nacinal was built in the late 1800's, and is a great source of pride for Costa Ricans, built at a time when coffee exports were wildly successful. The theatre is used for performances of only the highest quality, and an extremely selective process determines performances for the year. The building itself is considered the finest historical building in the capital city.

The interior space was unbelievable. Such an amazing night...not just due to the music, but especially to the person with whom I shared it.

  1. We only got to really see the outside of this building! As I'm sure you can imagine, it was a must-see for us in San Jose! I'm so glad you got such amazingly beautiful photos and had such a wonderful time! :) Miss you both! xoxo
