Next we went to the Museo Barezzi where we were given a tour of the documents left behind by Verdi, his music etc, and the tour ended with a opera performance. It was awesome! My ear drums almost broke, but she had such a pretty and powerful voice! It is definitely something I recommend for everyone to see at least once live. We did a meet and greet with her at the end and she said she has been singing opera since she was only 10 years old. That is crazy! I dont even know how people are able to sing in such a way let alone a 10 year old.
After the performance we all went to dinner together at a restaurant in Roncole which is a small village near Busseto. We had a lot of food that was so good; all you can eat pasta, meat, bread, and tons of wine! It was a lot of fun! I really liked all the dinners that we had with our professor. It was nice to come together at the end of a busy day and sit down and relax with everyone. Overall I think Busseto was such a nice part of Italy that I was really surprised by because when I think of Italy I automatically think of a place like Rome or Venice but seeing the countryside in Italy was a really neat experience.
