New game for 2014: see an opera a week.
Some rules spring to mind:
- Cinema showings and DVDs count, but CDs don’t.
- Concert and semi-staged performances count.
- Plays in Ancient Greek count.
- Musicals don’t count.
- Carmen is an opera for the purposes of this exercise.
- Performing in an opera counts.
- You need to see 52 operas over the course of the year, with no more than a month between any viewings.
- Different stagings of the same opera count. For example this year I saw Peter Grimes at the Arts Picturehouse and in a concert performance, which would both count, but going to two showings at the cinema or two concert performances would only count once.
