Why I love opera
I love opera because it not only shows you that practice pays off, but it encourages me to do my best at what I love.  I recently got to enjoy the opera Goldie B. Locks and the Three Singing Bears.  Let me just take a moment to say, it was phenomenal!   My favorite part was when they found Webster in the bread basket and started running around like maniacs.  Plus, when they sang the soup song I was shocked that someone's voice could reach that level of volume.  I was kind of scared that they were going to shatter the windows!  I have also seen the operas Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Red Riding Hood.  These operas that come to our school are absolutely hilarious!  In conclusion, I hope that I get to watch more of these amazing shows.
