Yesterday evening myself, along with Izzy and Luisa, headed off to Leeds University Union to see our good friend Emily perform in LUU Opera Society’s performance of the French opera “Carmen” – and what a night it was! As is customary when I write a post about a performance, you are obliged to click here and play the official soundtrack to this blog entry.

Having seen Emily last year in another Opera Society performance, Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Ruddigore“, we were apprehensive as to weather Carmen would be as good, and as funny – seeing as Carmen is not a comedy like Ruddigore.

We were not disappointed! Although Emily had a smaller role than her main part in Ruddigore, it was great to see (and hear) her up on stage alongside what turned out to be another fabulous and incredibly strong cast – Carmen herself really stole the show (and not just because of her amazing outfits!)

The ending of the show in particular had us all in stitches – maybe rather strangely. I won’t reveal all on here, you’ll have to go and see it yourself!

Once again it was a really lovely evening, and a great opportunity to do something different with all my colleagues from the graphics course. I urge anyone who has not yet done so to go and see it, tickets are only a fiver for students from LUU and the show is running every nigh at 7:30pm until this Saturday evening.

PS: Sorry that this post has no images – I was so caught up in the action that I forgot to take any!
