Opera, It’s Still Around

The second night of theater contained a double header: “A Hand of Bridge” and “Gianni Schicchi.” The first opera was ten minutes, a succinct yet fascinating look at a pair of couples playing bridge. “Gianni Schicchi” focused on a family after a death, riddle with greed, plotting, and quite a few funny moments.

The family searches for the Will. Such greed.

“What’s it matter?” you may be asking. Why should a college age student be concerned with this kind of stuff? I’ll give you a few reasons that I’ve gathered from the past two evenings.

These events are entertaining. They are intellectually stimulating (a bit more substance to them than the Fast and Furious franchise, for instance). They take me out of my comfort zone, and force me to experience something that is appreciated and worked on dilligently by others. If this isn’t growth on the Liberal Arts level, I don’t know what is.

    Great post! I feel like you captured such a large part of what Butler is all about. Taking individuals out of their comfort zone so they can experience something new that will help them grow!
