Macbeth: My first opera experience

In January I wrote a blog post about my New Year’s Resolutions for 2016. One of my resolutions was to go to the theater once in a while, because it’s something that I’m not really familiar with. Well, since the beginning of 2016, I tried two different pieces. The first one was a play called ‘Robin Hassan Hood‘, a story about the fact that people who live in the suburbs all over the world are facing the same struggle. It’s like living in a jungle where you have to find a way to survive. I did like the play, but it didn’t move me in any way. But then this weekend I saw Macbeth in the KVS, an opera directed by Brett Baily. Wow! After seeing it I wasn’t able to talk because I was fighting back tears. I will show you a short video at the end so you can have an idea of what to expect.
