A Night at the Opera

000035readdy Back in March, a few classmates and I went to see Ragnheiður, the first Icelandic opera ever to be staged in Harpa. It tells the story of a young woman in 16th century Iceland who falls in love with her handsome young tutor, a romance destined for tragedy. Ragnheiður was created by composer Gunnar Þórðarson and librettist Friðrik Erlingsson. I have only a basic understanding of opera, but I thoroughly  enjoyed this performance. The music was really beautiful, and the minimalist set was quite impressive.
