I have just got back from a weekend in Barcelona to celebrate my Husbands birthday. We pre- booked tickets for a performance of Opera y Flamenco based on the good reviews that we had read - after all it has been going strong for 8 years so surely there must be something good about it ?? How wrong we were. From the opening notes we could not believe how unmusical the whole evening was going to pan out! Instruments were out of tune. The first female singer sounded as though she had to be a relation of Margarita Crakatan(apologies to the aforementioned at least you have good comedic value!) I can only imagine that she must be completely tone deaf as there was virtually no true note hit. The opera singers were just so so. They sang arias which were pleasant enough, well known but not terribly well executed. The dancers were probably the best part of the "event" although they seemed a little jaded as though they are bored with the whole performance. I think that for the 40 euros a head spent on these tickets we had an extremely poor value experience. The saving grace was that it only lasted a little over an hour. Had there been an interval I doubt that we would have gone back for a second half! In contrast to this debacle, we had been to an amazing guitar recital given by Xavier Coll the night before which cost less than half the money of these tickets and which literally blew our socks off it was so brilliant!
