My question this week was had you ever been to The Opera?
I was thinking of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and her reaction to it.
I haven’t been and to be honest, it has never really appealed to me. However, it’s one of these things I believe you either love or hate.
The closest I got was going to the cinema to see Tommy and quite enjoyed that, though the guy I was with hated it and friends I worked with weren’t too impressed either.
I bought the soundtrack and listened to it a couple of times, but then lost interest.
Tommy is a 1975 British satirical operetta fantasy drama film written and directed by Ken Russell and based upon The Who’s 1969 rock opera album Tommy about a “psychosomatically deaf, mute, and blind” boy who becomes a pinball champion and religious leader. The film featured a star-studded ensemble cast, including the band members themselves (most notably, lead singer Roger Daltrey, who plays the title role), Ann-Margret, Oliver Reed, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Elton John, and Jack Nicholson.
