Tonight I went to see Georges Bizet’s “Carmen”—my first time at the opera. I loved it so much I’ll be going back again on Tuesday! 5 years ago

So, we were supposed to go to the Opera yesterday and my son got very sick so we weren’t able to go see Roberto Devereaux. I think the next one coming up is La Boheme, so I’ll have to see if I can get tix for that. 5 years ago
Bought tix to go see Roberto Devereaux at the Dallas Opera house this Sunday. Very excited!! 5 years ago
The singers and the music were sublime. I have never heard such beautiful, pure voices. But opera seems to have gotten pretty casual these days, or maybe it’s just in mellow Southern Cal. About half the crowd were casually dressed, some people even in jeans, though they were younger. And of course, everything was in Italian, so if you wanted to know what was going on, you had to read the subtitles above the stage. The result was this back and forth motion of your head, and you would miss some of Puccini’s slapstick comedy.
But all in all, it was very enjoyable, and I would go again. 7 years ago

There was an A level drama trip (I don’t actually do drama but they had a spare ticket) to “The Beggars Opera”... It was alright but the singing got a bit too much by the end of it. And I was really tired which didnt help. 8 years ago
