Who: Jordan, Trissa (Jordan's Mom), and I
What: The Phantom of the Opera Play
Where: The Phantom Theater at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada
When: Sunday February 13 until Tuesday February 15, 2011
Why: Jordan's older brother Skyler received ticket to The Phantom of the Opera in Las Vegas, Nevada for Christmas, and the tickets were for Valentines Day/Their 1 Year anniversary. A couple of days before Skyler and his wife were going to leave for Las Vegas they had a little bit of an accident with their car. The cost of repair on their car took up all of the money that they were going to use to go to Las Vegas, so they were unable to go. They decided that instead of letting the tickets go to waste they would give them to us :) Trissa had also received a ticket to go to the show for her birthday, so we all decided to go down together :)
How: We drove down on Sunday February 13 at around 9:00am and came back on Tuesday February 15, 2011
While we were there we also were able to go to Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay, the Coca Cola and M&M Factories, The Dooney and Bourke Store, The Largest Gift Shop on the Strip, In and Out Burger, enjoy yummy cupcakes, and walk around the Las Vegas Strip. Even though it was a quick trip we all had a lot of fun.
The Phantom of the Opera show, the main reason for going down to Vegas, was phenomenal! I loved all of the props and different scene changes that they used. I also loved how realistic they made everything, even the water scene. I thought that the acting and singing was fantastic as well! It was actually kind of like a magic show and play/opera all wrapped into one. There was no intermission, which I thought was kind of strange, but other than that it was definitely one of the best plays that I have ever seen.
