I WAS SO GOOD. I KISSED MYSELF !.

25-2-17. Morning of "Night at the Opera ". Opus 47 By Dvorak " Bagatelles ", On Radio. Something Dvorak Knocked off. In Evenings, Playing with Friends. Very Much at Ease with Himself.

Arrive in Good Time for Sheffield Cineworld Screening. Of Metropolitan Opera Production. " Rusalka " By Dvorak. Live from the Big Apple. Late Entry to be Seated. Due to Tests on Live Feed from New York.

It is Very Impressive. Vast Stage on Large Screen. Healthy Cinema Audience. Opera Based on Mermaid Fairy Tale. First Act Begins after Overture. Water Nymphs Dance in The Lily,s . This May be Enough for Some Nymphs. Not Rusalka !. She has big Ideas of Being Human. Warned by the Water Sprite. It Will All End in Tears. Love For a Prince Wins Over. Rusalka Summons Witch " Jezibaba ". Potion is Supplied. Are You With Me So Far ?. Well it is a Czech Fairy Tale !. Alas, it Does Not End Pretty. What Opera Does ?. The Aria " Song To The Moon " is Sung in the First Act. Where Ever Your Love is. You Can Think of Them. While Gazing the Moon. Ano, I Can go with that Vibe. Some people Say the Opera is Over Now. I Disagree. Fine Music Continues to the End. As Sir Mark Elder, States, it is a Classic. May Get Even More Credit in time. Along with Dvorak,s Master of Melody. He also adds Wagner,s Dark Dramatic Art.

Latvian Soprano Kristine Opolais. Is Wonderful. Plays Rusalka with Much Imagination. Acting to a tee, Mute & Icy, in Good Measure. Three American Singers take the Other Leading Roles. Jamie Barton Excels at Wicked Witch " Jezibaba ". Complete with Amazing Web Costume.

Dance Company are a Revelation. Wonderful Arrangements. Opera Directed by Mary Zimmerman. She Does a Fine Job. Though Not Sure Floorboards Act Very Well. As Never Ending Water Depth.

Act Intervals Work Well in Film Screenings. Extras Like Opera Performers Interviews. News of a Metropolitan Opera History Film. Soon to be Released. A Must See. Me thinks. Loved the Ninety Year Old Opera Singer. Stating, I Was So Good. I Felt Like Kissing Myself. In Fact I Did !. Tremendous !.

Amused on My Row. Two Elderly Gents. Whipped Out Plastic Containers in The Interval. A Feast !. Meat, Sandwich,s, Gherkin,s, Even Wine !.
Was Fascinated with Set & Stage Removals. In Vast Lincoln Centre Arena. Small Army Work in Slight Time Limits. American Flag High on One Huge Wall. Water Feature Not Working, then Rectified. Tremendous Moving Stages. Could Watch All Night.

Would Recommend Cinema Opera Screenings. Opera is Very Expensive To Produce. To Watch Opera, Costs a Arm & a Leg. Fine to See in Comfort In Your Own City Cinema. Departed Happy at 10-15 PM. After Listening to Excellent Dvorak Music. Plus a Fine Evenings Entertainment.
