Got to see The Phantom of the Opera
tonight with a bunch of good people, preceded by spectacularly yummy pear, gorgonzola, and greens pizza at California Pizza Kitchen. Very good company: cathijosephine
’s LJ-bereft friend C. who actually got us the tickets for cheap, C.’s sweetie D., and eisa
, which latter two met us at the theater after dinner.
I didn’t feel all that excited about the performance itself, but it was a wonderful experience all the same. The Opera House is physically, visually impressive in its ornate beauty; I’m glad places like that still exist and are still being maintained. The play also had a lot of ornate beauty and pageantry to it.
I definitely want to see more theater. And this made me want to see a more classical opera. I don’t like recorded opera music, but I think I’d enjoy it live.
I feel like I’ve got lots more to say, but I also feel like I should have been in bed hours ago. :-)
