Cultural Night for the Missionaries

For their one cultural evening for this transfer, our missionaries chose to see the musical, “My Fair Lady”, which was at an opera house in Bytom, one of the cities in our metropolitan area.  We all wondered just how this was going to be done since the play is about the English language.   We were all pleasantly surprised with how well the Polish version of this was  done – the language of Polish was mastered by Eliza Doolittle through the relentless practice of pronouncing the Polish consonants, as opposed to the English vowels in the original version of the musical.  The setting depicted more modern times, also.  It was an enjoyable evening for all of us and was another wonderful taste of Polish culture.

Here is the beautiful Opera Slaska in Bytom - the inside was beautiful, also.

After watching the production, we had one of the ushers take our picture as we were exiting the balcony.  Elders Smith, Reed Dopp, Neuner, Rittmanic, and Sisters Reed, Packard, and Pearson.
