A Night at the Opera

Thanks to my friend A, I was able to check another resolution off my list for 2012.  Monday night, L and I went to see Macbeth at the Metropolitan Opera.  When I saw La Traviata at a church in Rome I started thinking that maybe opera was too high class for me.  Turns out that it is not.  The orchestra and the venue were incredible.  The Met totally turned my opinion of the genre around.  It helps that I'm a huge Shakepeare nerd.  I saw Liev Schreiber in Macbeth for Shakespeare in the Park back in 2006 and thought that was pretty fantastic as well.  The subtitles also helped to improve my experience.  Operetic voices will probably never be my taste, but they make so much more sense in this context than for a solo at church.
