Metropolitan Opera

Our visit to the Met was my first experience with the opera in my life, and I didn’t know much about the opera other than what I had seen on television and what was the general stereotype about it. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the scenery and how beautiful the set was. However, the singing of every word did not suit me. I don’t see the purpose of every word being dragged out. That is the point of the opera, I suppose. That’s why the people that go enjoy it. I just wish there was more music to what they were singing. I felt that they were just holding the words out for a long time, and not necessarily being sung. Many times, I didn’t know what words were actually being said and I needed to use the subtitles. All that being said, I actually did enjoy the opera more than I expected to. It was a new experience and I would not mind another trip to the opera.
