Back in 1956 my new boyfriend took me to RAH.  We had a box, I think he was trying to impress, but I was absolutely mind blown with the whole experience.  It was the first time I had heard Mendelssohn's Italian, and every time I hear it now I am transported to that lovely evening.  Needless to say, I have been many times over the years, but unfortunately not in such imposing seats.
