How many of you listen to opera? I do -- big time. Carmen, Faust, Romeo et Juliette, Otello, The Magic Flute, Rinaldo, Madama Butterfly, La Wally -- you name it, I've heard at least some of it. I think it's an incredibly passionate thing above all, the way it's sung.

I happen to sing it sometimes, too -- not always very well, but I'm getting there. I hope to train a bit for opera when I get to be around seventeen.

Any thoughts?

It's interesting to listen to, but there's no way my voice could handle it if I ever did it. My voice cracks really badly, and I'm not very loud to begin with...

Good luck, by the way. ^^;

Well i've been singing opera since i was 7 years old(before my dad died) then i decided to live with my grandpa......because he is the sweetest man alive he took me to a opera house to listen to the Magic Flute, then he signed me up to take ballet lessons. Then after 2 years my grandpa died leaving me no choice but to live in the opera house because they have a orphanage for girls like me. So that's why i sing opera today and i still do!


pitiful creature of darkness.....what kind of life have you known? god give me courage to show you.....you are not alone

I'm not a huge opera person, although I LOVE the Gilbert and Sullivan comic operas. My dad has played them all my life, but I have never paid full attention.... they seem to be a bit overdone to me. But it is a beautiful style of music, indeed.
oh, and I do like Carmen! :)

*sings* "L'amour est un oiseau rebelle, que nul ne peut apprivoiser . . ." That's "Habanera" from "Carmen".

Anyway, some of my favorites are "Faust", "Romeo et Juliette", Rossini's "Otello" . . . of course, Phantom stuff. But recently I've been getting into Puccini. "Gianni Schicci", "Madama Butterfly", etcetera. I also love "Die Holle Rache" from "Die Zauberflote", or "The Magic Flute".

So, anyway, yeah, I sing opera obsessively, and was pretty upset when I couldn't sing for five days. But I'm back singing F sharps above high C now. You can't even find that note on the piano, I don't think. Mwahaha!

I suggest something well-known at first, like Verdi's Aida. You'll be surprised at how many tunes you recognize. Also good is anything by Puccini, or Gounod.

Around christmas i was cast as Christine for a production of POTO that my summer arts camp is doing, and i have been taken operatic (is that a word??) voice lesson ever since. They are so much fun! To get me started on opera, my teacher introduced me to a song in Faust and another one from Romeo and Juliette.... I liked them a lot! I have started listening to opera more and more, and now i listen to it all teh time!
