Another Day, Another Opera

After the late night, we slowed the pace and traveled to the next town to see a Romanesque church that was part of the pilgrim route to Rome. The exterior has many nice carving that tell the story of Christ as well as the pilgrims.

This is the story of the martyr for whom the church is named. After he was beheaded, he carried it to the site of the church for burial.

The evening was the opera Il Masnadieri (The Bandits) a rarely performed one of Verdi's works. Much shorter and faster moving.
