Final Sunday, November 15, I went to see the opera A Dream of Armageddon at New Nationwide Theatre. Dai Fujikura who composed the music (and produced?) talked about the unique quick story, and I learn the Japanese translation earlier than I went. I used to be fairly confused by the characters (in all probability partially because of the Japanese translation which is tough to tell apart who’s who?), I used to be misplaced. After I noticed the interview by Harry Ross who did phrases of the opera, I had a bit clearer thought of what it was all about.
Once I noticed the efficiency, nonetheless, my confusion got here again because it appeared to comply with the unique story. So after I noticed the present, I used to be fairly misplaced and didn’t make any weblog entry. Now the spotlight video of the efficiency is on the market and there are two extra performances scheduled, I made a decision to put in writing on this weblog. (As I come to think about it, I used to be beneath a lot stress just a few days earlier than I went to see it AND I made a decision to go to Kyoto the subsequent day and organized the assembly and so forth.- i.e. rushed decision- I used to be NOT prepared to understand with clear thoughts.) Actually, even after I see the spotlight video as beneath, I can’t recall whether or not I noticed the scene or not. (It seems that my thoughts was off someplace after I noticed it?)
Right here is the video (some 5 minutes exhibiting some scenes from the opera) For particulars and tickets, right here is the hyperlink.
