“Steven Berkoff’s iconic adaptation of Franz Kafka’s novella, which tells the tale of a travelling salesman who is transformed into an insect, is brought to life in this highly physical and visually striking production. Captured live at the Parco Theater in Tokyo, this landmark performance is in Japanese with English subtitles.” —– Steven Berkoff
For those of you reading this blog and don’t know what opera senses are, they are a collection of acts from musical operas. In this show, I had the pleasure of watching twelve students how we’re extremely talented singers and dedicated to putting on a truly spectacular show without any hiccups.
I was fortunate enough to share this experience with one of my best friends from High school. He was so enticed by the performance he agreed to watch another live performance the following day. I wish I was able to take pictures but unfortunately, a lady sitting next to us told us to put our phone away and no pictures were allowed.
I am going to try my best, to describe my favorite scene. In this sense, there were six women all wearing black and were performing various dances while trying to portray being wives of some cruel bozo who divorced three of his wife’s and “beheaded” two of his wife’s. The scene comes to an end when the sixth wife tells the audience how she escaped.
Overall the scenes were short and gave you all types of feeling from a few being funny, sad and cheerful. I truly enjoyed it and it isn’t a bad idea to watch the opera scenes with a date because it was an emotional rollercoaster.
