    LuckiestGirlEvur:  Honestly, I think you can wear whatever you want!  I would personally pick the LBD but that’s always my go to 🙂

    LuckiestGirlEvur:  The ModCloth LBD. Can’t go wrong there. You can’t eat in the other one! And I think the long ones are to formal.

    Def the LBD with some glam accessories and a sleek wrap!  Save the long dresses for the actual Opera!

    LuckiestGirlEvur:  Any of those options would be great for Phantom. My FI has gone many times and saw people dressed to the nines and people in jeans. I personally dress up to go to any play or musical. Plus its an anniversary so I’d go with the LBD.

    Audrey2_sings:  Agreed, though I wish it weren’t so, because I wish more people dressed up for these things.  I’m fortunate enough to attend multiple performances at a prominent opera company every year and the only night when most women are in long gowns is Opening Night. 

    However, LuckiestGirlEvur:  I think something along the lines of the third dress would be wonderful.  I hope that you and your husband have a wonderful time!

    LuckiestGirlEvur:  You can wear any of them. There are always people in everything from jeans to formal gowns at the theater.

    MarriedToMyWork:  Me too!  I go to the theater a lot (not the opera though), and I used to dress up way more than I do now.  It was part of the experience.  The more we go the more casual we’ve gotten, mostly because everyone else is so casual too.  I do live in Seattle though, so perhaps that factors in too.  😉  I still try not to wear jeans.

    I’d go with either of the short ones. And btw, I’m so jealous!

    Definitely the LBD – the long gowns are too formal.  I work with Opera Australia (and so at the Sydney Opera House) and it’s really only huge opening nights or New Year’s Eve where anyone is wearing anything that formal.  That black dress is killer though and I reckon it’s perfect for the occasion!
