Post Script to Salzburg

There is something I forgot to say in my writing about Salzburg.  Both the Large Hall and the House for Mozart have really excellent acoustics.  I sat in various areas in both rooms and could always hear the singers.  I am accustomed to the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House which has truly terrible acoustics, so this was a treat.  In its defense I don't think either of the Salzburg houses are as large as the War Memorial.  Bad seats.  Marvelous acoustics.  Perhaps this is the proper prioritization.
