I have long had a fascination with the Phantom of the Opera since a good friend of mine introduced it to me in the 10th grade. My friend would sing from it all the time and spent a lot of time talking about it. I knew the basic story but had never seen it until the movie came out a couple of years ago. And I must say that it is an EXCELLENT version. However, an opera is meant to be seen live. That's its true form.
I've seen the Phantom come to a town near us several times in the last 5 years since I've lived here but tickets are always so expensive and the money just can't be spared. However, Sunday night I get to go!!! YEAH!!!! My very sweet friend and her boyfriend are taking me and my husband to see it. I'm so excited. My friend has never seen it at all. Since it can be somewhat complicated following an unfamiliar plot during an opera I made her watch the movie last night so that she would have an understanding of what was happening when we go on Sunday night. I'm so excited. Its the first time I've been to see a professional show since the summer before my senior year of high school when my sister took my to see Oklahoma at Fair Park in Dallas. Wish you all could come with us.
