I had purchased the ticket for tonight’s Armida HD rebroadcast in September. Tonight was the last rebroadcast for this season, and maybe the last rebroadcast I ever attend. Although I appreciate the quality of the opera stars’ voices, I realize that opera is an art form I do not appreciate, or enjoy. As I indicated in a prior post, I had started to realize I am not an opera fan after attending several performance this season, and tonight’s experience finalized that realization. Next year, I will definitely not attend the full series, and will be very selective if I attend any performances. Again, I respect the quality of the voices, and the overall quality of the productions, it is just not for me.
To add fuel to the fire, the opera rebroadcast finished at about the same time as the Red Sox home game two blocks up the street at Fenway Park.
