I attended a choir field trip on November 15, 2018 and we traveled to San Francisco for an opera/play show. It was my first time at a opera show, and I was very excited to see what it was all about. We had a nice view of the stage from where we were sitting even though we had to climb almost 50 flights of stairs to get to there, but it was worth it.

What was It’s A Wonderful Life about?

There was a guardian angel who never got her wings and her person that she watches over was in trouble. His name was George and he was trying to commit suicide because he thought his life was meaningless.  So his guardian angel had to go on a journey to see where his life went wrong and how she could fix it.

It turns out that he was sad because his dream was to go travel the world and see all these kinds of places. He never went and had to stay in his hometown and take care of his family business. He missed out on college while waiting for opportunities that came his way, even to leave his hometown. Some trouble happened between the way. The uncle who helped run the family business lost almost $8,000 for what they were supposed to pay back. But the old man stole the money, and the uncle never knew.

George got very upset and started yelling at his kids and wife. Then he went to go jump off a bridge, but his guardian angel stopped him. Then they talked and then George said, “I wish I never had been born,” and she should give him a life where he had never been born. She shows him how everything he did in life was gone. No one knew his name. He was getting frustrated. Then the angel  told him “your life is not meaningless.”

And then he went back to his life, and he was happy again. He wasn’t mad about the money and he wasn’t mad at his wife or at his kids.  He was finally happy. Then all the townspeople gathered around and rejoiced with him. They sang and danced and then the show ended shortly after that.

How did you enjoy it?

I really liked it. The time when George was sitting with his angel was really emotional for me because I feel like I could relate with what he was feeling. Overall the experience was like nothing I’ve ever lived, and if it weren’t for this opportunity, I would probably never have gone to the opera house on my own. Hearing the actors sing in opera was also a new experience for me.  I was impressed with their ability to sing so high and felt they did a good job by adding something special to the play.
