I just had to do a bit of ranting and raving! This morning, I decided that I would indeed splurge on a ticket to see La Boheme at the Sydney Opera House.

But can I get a ticket? Noooooo - the website is stuck in a loop that keeps sending me back to the page where I have to put in my address!

And believe me - I tried several times! So, I have now fired off an email to the Booking Office and am hoping that I can still get a ticket as they are scarcer than hen's teeth!

It is not like booking tickets for a show in London, because I can't just telephone the Booking Office and ask what is going on as they are all tucked up in their beds (or, more likely, out partying the night away!!)

Anyway, I am determined to get a ticket, so I will probably try again at some point and will let you know how I get on!

After all, I can't go to Sydney without seeing a show at the Opera House!! ;-)

UPDATE: I have now got a ticket! It was just a stupid website! The problem was that I was ignoring the address box that said "State" because underneath, it said for Australian addresses only. But when I clicked on it, it did give the option to put Wiltshire in and when I did that, everything went smooooothly! How perfectly irritating!! But many many thanks to Ann, who is now rubbing it in!! ;-)
