Tonight we experienced Opera in the Park for the first time! La bohéme was brought to us by BP Big Screens and the Royal Opera House. Mum messaged last week to ask if we fancied going along and we were keen, if the weather was nice. I confess, when the day came and the sun was slowly blocked out by harr I hoped she wouldn’t want to go anymore…but she’s a keen bean! So Matts and I plucked ourselves off the sofa, grabbed blankets, warm jackets and scarves, made a flask of hot choc, and headed along to the park with Mumsy. We could have just opened our windows and stayed in the flat, we live so close! But then we wouldn’t have had a clue what was going on…to be honest, there wasn’t a lot to the story line, it takes them so long to sing each line that there isn’t time for much of a storyline! *Cue Opera lovers tearing me apart* Don’t get me wrong, it was beautiful to watch and listen to, and I liked that there was a lot of humour in the first half, and then a lot of emotion in the second half. It did turn out to be a really enjoyable evening! Albeit a little chilly.
