To see or not to see, that is the question. For a Theatre Studies major and someone who loves the performing arts, I try to see as many shows as I can. Going to school in Boston has now made that more accessible for me. And student rush tickets? Best invention in the whole world. Whoever thought of that deserves an honorary award.
But here’s something I’ve been thinking about though: Tosca. Opera? What’s that? Of course, in general, I know what an opera is. But really, what is it? What does it really feel like to see it onstage? How will it feel when I can witness it in person? How moved will I be when I can see it all happening in front of me? And wait… Student subscription at the Boston Lyric Opera? Is that REAL?!? This is exactly what I need. How else am I going to experience opera? This is the perfect antidote for my opera curiosity without leaving my wallet completely empty.
So get ready! I’m breaking out my pretty dresses and heels. I’m going to the opera
