Good Monday, Persephoneers! I sincerely hope that this week is off to a good start. Yesterday, thanks to the Internet (and more specifically, a giveaway promotion), my family experienced the opera for the first time.
We took in a performance of Amahl and the Night Visitors
. It was a lovely performance, and it lasted only one hour, which is just the right amount of opera for a four-year-old and a seven-year-old. Ever since, the children have been attempting to “sing opera,” which then devolves into a yodeling contest.
ANYWAY. Our family activity got me thinking about first performances: what shows, performances, and exhibits did you get to experience as a young child, and what impression did they make on you??
