Famous quotes containing the words opera house, house and/or opera:

    The opera house sparkled with tiers
    And tiers of eyes, like mine enlarged by belladonna,
    James Merrill (b. 1926)

    In America a woman loses her independence for ever in the bonds of matrimony. While there is less constraint on girls there than anywhere else, a wife submits to stricter obligations. For the former, her father’s house is a home of freedom and pleasure; for the latter, her husband’s is almost a cloister.
    Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–1859)

    The opera house sparkled with tiers
    And tiers of eyes, like mine enlarged by belladonna,
