Opera Review: Heart of a Soldier

As part of my new high class (living in San Francisco) lifestyle, I went to the San Francisco Opera. I’ve never been to the opera before and really didn’t have any desire to go (it just didn’t seem like my thing), but my girlfriend has season tickets and wanted to take me along for a show. This year there was a new Opera, just commissioned, called Heart of a Soldier and with me being a bit of a military buff, she thought I’d enjoy it. To make a long story short, no one seemed to much enjoy it, let alone me.

Note: It’s an opera about September 11th. I’m not even going to bother saying “Spoiler warning”
