Pick your art, I like mine live

London is an incredible city, known for many things, such as the theatre culture that exists. I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Phantom of the Opera, which has been playing in London for over 20 years. This is one of the many musicals that calls London home, as one could attend a different theatre performance every night for a month and still not see all that London has to offer. The theatre life is a source of evening entertainment for many people, as each theatre holds several hundred people if not a thousand.

It has been my dream to attend the Phantom of the Opera and I was willing to pay whatever it cost. It was worth every penny, as the play came alive through all of the different songs and performers who act out the roles with everything they have. The musical was spectacular and a vast contrast to the types of art that we explored in London during the day. I consider museums and art galleries to be filled with dead art and musicals and plays to be filled with live art. There are so many different types of art in the city that there is something there for everyone. I really enjoyed my time in London, and would gladly go back to have another experience of the rich culture that exists.

    What a great description of theatre: live art!
    (Did you get to have a little debate with your good travelling company, about “dead art”?!)
