Every year towards the end, I usually talk about all the musicals I saw this year. But, things are different this year- with shows being postponed. Here are the musicals/operas I saw these.
Come From Away
This was actually my only musical of the year. It is home to a wonderful story about humanity shown in the middle of tragedy. Taking place during 9/11, it happens in Gander, Newfoundland. At the last minute, the town had to welcome a lot of others. 38 planes had to stop and the closest was in Newfoundland- a lot of humanity was shown.
While yes, this is an opera. However, musicals and operas do fall under the same umbrella. Don’t forget- they do share some similarities. I wanted to see this opera for a while- my love of Rent drove me to wanting to see this opera. After all, Rent is based off of La Bohème.
Now, I finally saw it and it became my favorite opera. This is an opera that almost never happened- my parents weren’t going to get me tickets. From a church member, we were given two free tickets. My mom and I went together.
La Bohème is a tragic but beautiful opera. I remember almost losing it at the end.
