when I tried to see Carmen for free, they asked me to subscribe, and I almost did, but then the Berliner Philharmoniker isn't doing yellowface this year, so I subscribed to that instead.

I made it 30 minutes into Carmen and then remembered that I don't like opera.

I made it the same into Dialogues des Carmélites, but was really enjoying it, just started watching too late and had to sleep.
