Palco royale at La Fenice

Last Monday, I was able to buy a ticket for Puccini's Turandot that had just been released when I went to the ticket office. It was a seat in the royal box. I drew this tonight while waiting for the opera to begin. If I had more time, I would have tried to note down some of the gilded, mirrored, sculpted and velvet excess of the box itself.
