So apparently I’m an opera buff now. I have discovered that the English National Opera has its own YouTube channel, which is excellent news, because it means I can show you some clips of the actual production that I attended. The ENO sings in English, which is super helpful if you are trying to follow the story, and who doesn’t want to do that. It was an amazing production, set in 1950s Manhattan (the original opera was first performed in 1851 and was originally set in the 16th century). Here it is! It was one of the best things I’ve ever been to.
It’s on for two more days! You might still be able to get a ticket!
