Operetta "Orpheus in the Underworld"
I went to see the operetta titled "天国と地獄” or "Orpheus in the Underworld" on April 30. I was invited to this operetta by a former colleague, Mrs. Sato. She is included in this operetta. She performed the role of a goddess singing in soprano. Generally operetta is shorter than an opera, and it is usually light and deals with amusing characters. "Orpheus in the Underworld" is a funny story with a pleasant music. The orchestra members and the singers were mostly business workers of Marunouti area in Tokyo. Some of main casts singing the sole parts were professional musicians. The performances were great and surprised me.
