There is a first time for everything...
1 December 2003 | by kcmanixSee all my reviews

I had no idea what to expect. "Streetcar" as an opera? It was playing in Austin, TX right before I left for Kansas City and I was NOT about to go see it. That was because I couldn't understand how it could work as an opera. One of my most beloved plays that takes place in my favorite city being sung? Well let me tell you, it WORKED! A good friend of mine showed me the film one night, thus exposing me to my first opera. That aside, it was amazing! The cast KNEW the characters and all of the angst, passion, love and hate were sung to perfection. Get this DVD and show it to everyone you know! The ending lines have left me haunted and they give me chills when I think about it. Trust me, it's worth it!
