I didn’t go to a traditional opera of the European variety, however I was lucky enough to get to go the Chinese Carnival.
A few of the amazing performers in this show were Chinese opera singers, and, from what I was told, are all quite famous in China. There were also dancers and musicians, contortionists, artists, a calligrapher and even the hula hoop world record holder! She hula hooped with 300 hula hoops at once, insane. We were pretty close to the stage, ’cause my dad’s pretty important and the tickets he got were sick, you’re jealous.
A very fun night, thanks for inviting me, dad!
