This summer I've had a very impressive experience. I could be one of collaborators of a big artistic work. I'm afraid it sounds strange. To tell the truth, I went to the theater with one of my friends to enjoy the musical "Les Miserables."
At first I didn't expect so much, because I knew this famous, tragic story, and also because the musical got too much fame. Paradoxically speaking, too much expectation often disappoints me.
But after about three hours, something warm rushed into my heart. It was not the splendid music. It was not the skillful acting. It was neither the marvelous lighting nor scenic design. But it was delight that brightened all faces of actors and actresses after the finale. It was satisfaction that meant to have finished one big work. It was pleasure that meant to take part in the creative team.
And I felt I also participated as one of the audience.
I almost saw the contented smile of the lighting assistant when the effect surprised us, the audience. I almost felt the chuckle of the actor whose dramatic death moved us. When the unique scene changing astonished the audience, I wanted to do the work together.
I think all the members on the stage and backstage knew what we, the audience, felt or thought. That's why they did their best and moved us. And at last they and we could be one in the theater.
Do you agree to my opinion that I could be one of collaborators of the musical?
