Wonder! why, Did the site Not be used for Recreational purposes Earlier.
The Very fact of the Opera House being under Restoration for about 8 Years.
Shows,the Royalty with which the Opera House which had the term Royal prefixed when King George V inaugurated the building in 1911 while the building was still under construction.
The Opera House Has the Grandeur and a presence of state of the art Architecture and feel to it.
It can be one of the few victories of discovering and successfully restoring a stage for Art & Cultural Purposes .
Having been More than a century Old The Royal Opera doesn’t seemed to have the ageing effect.
It’s Surely very competitive to International standards & International Opera Houses around the World.That The Unesco Community has awarded the Stage with a Asia- Pacific Award For cultural Heritage Award Conservation.
An Important Symbol of Art & Culture would have been lost forever,In 1993 Itself,Hadn’t the restoration plans been implemented in 2008 and executed for the exterior and the interior restoration from 2011 and complete restoration done by 2016. We wouldn’t have been able to experience the Royal Highness.
The Experience of The Royal Opera House was further enhanced by the Play we watched there “Siddhus of Upper Juhu” A Light-hearted Comedy play with Character portraying life in a Metro of a Parsi-punjab Couple who have moved to the Juhu Surburb and Life of a working couple.
The Night Ended with, Pizza’s for Dinner at TheQuarter A Dining space in the compound of Royal Opera House. Live Music playing in the indoor space and The outdoor open space had a lively feel to it.
,We could only Show our Support by visiting the most beautiful site for the events, It has to offer for all of us who live here in the city and in the country. As it is the only existing Opera House in our country.
Theatre is so much more powerful than movies,the medium has actors performing live to an audience with just the stage as the only space for performances,theatre has just the few lights and the core acting team performing a few characters each.Theatre becomes even more challenging for the performing artists to play ,the character with so much of disturbance around,The laughter and the movement the concentration becomes the only means of staying true to the character performed by the actors,the spontaneous action and reaction between characters is more enjoyable in the plays rather than movies.Writer Bloc 4 the 10 day long festival at Prithvi which started on the 1st April and Will concluded on the 10th has made me look at theatre from a perspective that I haven’t really come across in the past while watching plays.The storytelling is simplified with actors in-acting scenes without any hesitance in front of the audience.The lighting is the key part in theatre since that would only help the audience know whether its day or night sequence.The 2 plays that,I have watched so far since the festival have begun has also made me realise the language doesn’t really matter the story and the Act by the Actors can help you understand and enjoy the play.
With just a week left,why not head to Prithvi to watch some interesting plays?,written by writers who want a platform to showcase their talent to people who love the theatre medium and encourage new talent on another platform of art which is dying a slow death .
