So I was stumbling around my house (half drunkenly) when I stumbled (more like tripped) over this gnarly box set called "Masters of The Opera!"


Now I can't stop listening to the stuff! It's really good.

Especially Handel's "Ombra Mai Fu" from Xerxes.


So am I the only one who like's this stuff? or are there others around me who l

Cyrano de Bergerac is an amazing story/production.

Also if you are a vocalist listen to Luciano Pavarotti.

Was Mozart opera?
nvm

I really love classical and opera music. I don't know alot about it, but whenever I get my hand on some I take some time to chill out and just sit and listen. The virtuosity, emotion and dynamics of the music is amazing.

same.


and no. i dont like opera because i dont like the "opera voice." i noticed this when i last saw westside story. the main girl has an opera voice and it just doesn't fit with everyone else's. i dont know. i just like more 'poppy' vocals.

I love classical music/opera.

I prefer it when guys sing, though.

I love the Opera singers' voices. I would like to have in English so I can try to sing along, but it sounds more classical in German and such tbh.

I do.

Favourite song is the theme from Modigliani. Strictly speaking it's a 'pop' opera voice singing this, and it's in English, but it still sends shievers down my back when the chorus hits in.

That's a horrible version. Can't find any good ones on youtube. But wait until 30 seconds onwards.

I love Mozart so much. Amadeus is my all time favourite movie and my favourite song is easily Symphony No. 25 in G Minor..

Oh and Beetover, Bach, and Chopin .. they're all well known, but still my favourites.


EDIT:

I lied, this is my most favourite song.

I like going to see operas, I'm not really into buying them on CD and listening to them on my stereo or whatever though.

I'm not a huge fan of opera, but I did see Barbe Bleue. It was a riot.

It's hard for me to find some good stuff to listen to, but the stuff I have heard I like. The vocals are always amazing. =)

I admire the amount of talent that it takes to project your voice so far and so loud give me a couple of months and I will probably be into it.

Yeah, I love the sound of Tenor's though I have heard some good pieces sung by Baritones and Bass-Baritones.


Today in my Vocal Technique class and my teacher showed us some Counter-Tenor's and a male Soprano and oh god!

It was horrible. It sounded like a girl was singing, but it was a guy!

I'm the same way. I really enjoy playing and seeing live classical music, but I don't really listen to it for kicks in my free time.

I love operas and opera music, but I rarely get the chance to see them. My favorite one musically is Carmina Burana, although I'll admit that I've only heard recordings.
