opera


Pink / Beautiful Trauma

A friend of mine gave me a free ticket of "The Marriage of Figaro" by opera.
I'm embarrassed to say that but it was the first time in my life to see an opera. I didn't know about operas well. I had thought that they were similar to musical shows. To be honest, I don't like musical shows because it is sometimes difficult for me to understand the story. I want them to either sing or speak.
So, I hadn't expected the opera so much.

I was surprised to see that her daughter played there although she was not one of the main roles.
Besides, when they were singing, the lyrics were being showed on the beside both boads. So, it was easy for me to understand the story. And they were sometimes singing, but were sometimes speaking normally. 
It was also good that an orchestra was playing in front of the stage.

I was glad to understand the story and really enjoyed it.

I'm embarrassed to say it, but it was the first time in my life I had seen an opera. I didn't know much about operas. I had thought that they were similar to musicals. To be honest, I don't like musicals because it is sometimes difficult for me to understand the story. I want them to either sing or to speak.
So, I hadn't expected much from the opera.

I was surprised to see that her daughter played in the opera in a supporting role.
Besides, while they were singing, the lyrics were being shown on the side boards. So, it was easy for me to understand the story. And, they were sometimes singing, and sometimes speaking normally. 
A full orchestra was playing in the orchestra box, and this lent an air of sophistication and glamor to the stage.

I was glad to have understood the story. I really enjoyed my night out at the theater.

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections as always.

As for "this lent an air of sophistication and glamor to the stage", I think that this expression is sophisticated.
