When you go to a concert, how late would you like it to last?
Some of us are night owls who are happy to be up well into the night, and even happier if we can be at an event quite late. In fact, some cities, such as Berlin, actually schedule late-night classical concerts. But sometimes, when it comes to a symphony concert or recital, "less is more." A well-planned and well-performed that is less than two hours can be satisfying without being exhausting. At the same time, we do want enough of a concert to feel that our time and money have been well-spent! And if a night-time concert is simply past your bed time, you might be the kind of person who prefers an afternoon show.
In your view, when is the best time for a concert, and how late would you like to be out at the symphony or another kind of classical concert? Please answer the vote and then share your thoughts in the comments.
