Wow. You are all so diurnal :)

I loathe early curtains passionately, but then again, I feel like I'm at my best at about 1 am.

Moi aussi. Left entirely to myself, I'd probably keep vampire's hours. :)

Well, as Ballet Dad wrote, perhaps having several different curtain hours would be a good compromise? For example there is a theater in Marseille whose curtain time is around 7:30 PM on some days and around 9 PM on other days, so people can choose what suits them best. I'm not that much diurnal, but for example when attending performances in some suburbs of Paris relatively far away from my home, like Saint-Quentin en Yvelines or Saint-Germain en Laye, I really appreciate early curtain times because it enables to to take the RER and metro to come back home (else I wouldn't attend the performances). On the other hand, sometimes I find the 7:30 curtain time at the Paris Opera a bit too early, as dining before is nearly impossible (most restaurants open at 7) and dining too late isn't very convenient when attending it with a close relative having juvenile diabetes- but anyway it's hard to find an hour suiting anybody!
