Truthful Tuesday 15th November: my answer

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.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I’ve been to the opera several times. I have to say that if the opera is in English I derive much more satisfaction than if it is in Italian or German… I saw Tommy in the theater and was a little overwhelmed. My friend thought it was absolutely the best thing she’d ever experienced…

    Same with me with not being an opera fan unless you count ‘Tommy’ the movie.

    I liked this when I was in high school. I’m kind of underwhelmed by it now.
