Har sett denna fantastiska musikal två gånger i London; 12 juli 2016 och 11 mars 2017. Jag vet att jag kommer se den igen. Det är den bästa musikal jag sett live med tanke på att den har allt; fin musik och duktiga sångare förstås, en bra story, grymma dansare samt fantastiska kläder och scendekoration.
Här kan ni läsa mitt inlägg om när jag såg musikalen för första gången.
Book: Linda Woolverton, Robert Falls & David Henry Hwang
Basis: "Aida" by Giuseppe Verdi
I am here to tell you we can never meet again. Simple, really, isn't it? A word or two and then a lifetime of not knowing where or how or why or when. You think of me, or speak of me, and wonder what befell that someone you once loved so long ago so well. Never wonder what I'll feel as living shuffles by. You don't have to ask me and I need not reply. Every moment of my life from now until I die, I will think or dream of you and fail to understand how a perfect love can be confounded out of hand. Is it written in the stars? Are we paying for some crime? Is that all that we are good for? Just a stretch of mortal time, or some God's experiment in which we have no say. In which we're given paradise, but only for a day. Nothing can be altered, there is nothing to decide. No escape, no change of heart, nor any place to hide. Oh, you are all I ever want, but this I am denied. Sometimes in my darkest thoughts I wish I'd never learned what it is to be in love and have that love returned. Is it written in the stars? Are we paying for some crime? Is that all that we are good for? Just some stretch of mortal time, or some God's experiment in which we have no say. In which we're given paradise, but only for a day.
