Tangent: Opera

Number Eighteen : Go to the Opera:

Last weekend we went to see the new revived performance of 'Carmen Jones' at the Royal festival Hall in London, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Of course, it was nothing like true opera, very modernised and liberated, but I recognised all the music and hummed along to the tunes. It was vibrant, exciting, clourful and dynamic.

If that's what can be done with opera, then I'm a new fan!
