    Unfortunately though, I haven't had the chance to attend very much lately...

    I did as a kid(school funded trips were common) but very seldom these days. Most of today's shows/plays are just self-indulgent arty crap and the tickets are too expensive.

    I grew up going on field trips to the San francisco Symphony

    Metallica & San Francisco Symphony Orchestra
    Watch them here:

    James Hetfield is an a** though! Great music, I give him that much. Symphony and Rock, the best of both worlds!

    I go to the theatre occasionally, but rarely enjoy it. (I usually go because a friend has talked me into seeing a particular play.)

    But I LOVE the ballet (well, most productions I've seen. ). Last one I went to see was "The Taming of the Shrew" by the West Australian Ballet Company and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra. Was fantastic, and made me cry at the end! :p

    I like to go to the symphony, opera, etc. Unfortunately the opera in Phoenix Arizona is not so good. A few years ago I went to Der fliegende Holländer here because it was going to be in German, I had high hopes, they were dashed. First when the Dutchman was played by an African American, and downhill from there. The music, the sets, etc. was sub-par in my humble opinion.

    I haven't gone to an opera since I lived in San Francisco about ten years ago. But right now we live about 5 miles from Oregon Shakespeare Festival and attend plays regularly.

    I love going to the Ballet. I had actually taken classes with the Cincinnati Ballet School, although I was never with the company. I enjoy their performances of the "Nutcracker" every Christmas.

    Went to see War Horse with my girlfriend last night in London, and it was absolutely fantastic. 10/10



    In Devon at the outbreak of World War I, Joey, young Albert Narracott's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. Joey serves in the British and German Armies, befriends Topthorn (another army horse),[3] and gets caught up in enemy fire; death, disease and fate take him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in No Man's Land. But Albert cannot forget Joey, and, still not old enough to enlist in the army, he embarks on a dangerous mission to find him and bring him home to Devon.
    All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
