    I saw it once, the one with Pavarotti.
    It was horrible&#33; I hate it&#33; I&#39;m certainly not a fan of Verdi&#33; :angry:
    I don&#39;t like the exotic costumes also. The whole desert thing just doesn&#39;t work for me&#33; :angry:

    You saw it with Pavarotti&#33; I was so upset when he retired. I&#39;m finally old enough that I can afford to go see him if he comes anywhere even remotely near the midwest and he went and retired. I love operas. Big music, big costumes, big singers (Pavarotti,) bad plots&#33; I would have loved to see that performance.

    War Memorial Opera House, San Francisco, 1981.
    I think I was 5 then. I went with my Aunt. She loved it, but definately not me&#33; And my opinion&#39;s still the same after 20 over years.
    U can still see it occassionally on TVs. They had it digitally remastered.

    Yes, not many 5 year olds are into opera&#33; I think I would&#39;ve been bored silly even if I were 10&#33;

    I was in love with classical music from the time I was born to about 7. I listened to it 24/7 (my first opera was at Shea&#39;s; the Nutcracker.) Then I hated it and thought it was dorky. I liked rap/hip hop. I have NO IDEA what I was thinking. I got back into classical/jazz at 16. B)
