The Magic Flute - review by Cody

This was my first opera. It was really good and awesome. The opera house was really cool. I liked Papageno the best. He was really funny. I liked the music too. The screens on the back of the seats were neat and you could press the button for English, German or Spanish and I pushed them all. And the gold ceiling was cool. I wish pieces of it would fall where I was sitting so I could get a lot of money. I liked all of the diamond lights too. I would like to go back again. After we went to a fancy restaurant (O'Neal's) and the cast sat next to us. The king dropped his plate and it broke and he sang la la la like the funny bad guy did.

Great review, Cody!! :)

I can only hope that my kids/nieces/nephews someday appreciate opera at a young age like this!

Another great review, Cody. I saw my first opera in the fall, also with your aunt, and it was awesome. Wish I could see this one, too. It sounds like fun. You're right, the Met is cool! I also loved the screens on the back of the seats but I didn't think to push all the buttons.

Wow! What a night! I like pushing all those buttons, too -- just ask your aunt!

There are screens in the seats? MY! The MET is fancier than the Lyric, ain't it! Loved the review!
