Whirlpool of Confusion

Who knew great singing doesn’t always conclude to a great show?

The opera was indeed interesting; all characters had different pitches, volumes and messages behind their voice. I only wish that I could really enjoy it. The visual aid of the English sub-titles was a HUGE distraction to me.
The lights were too close to the words , so as I was trying to read them I would get headaches and my eyes would hurt to the point that they felt like they were bleeding. Then, while all of this was going on, I had to try and focus on the show. How can I focus on the show while reading words? I can’t! I was also utterly confused when I did watch the performance, because I didn’t know what was going on BECAUSE I WAS READING THE ENGLISH SUB-TITLES NEXT TO THE BRIGHT LIGHTS. It looked like it would have been a good show if I knew what was going on, but I just ended up confused. Lost. Wanting to know what was going on.
