Twenty-two years old, and I detest musicals, yet love opulent operas like this version of “Anna Bolena” that was performed at the Met this past fall. One of the things I miss most about living in Italy was the fact that operas and ballets were always viable options; CULTURE is something that is decidedly lacking here, and as much as I may be a football-and-beer girl, my SOUL needs something breathtaking and graceful with a wrought-iron skeleton like the taxing grand operas and ballets sometimes. They are just breath-taking and awe-inspiring.
