Puccini's "Vissi d'arte" with the wonderful Angela Gheorghiu. Mimed of course, but deliciously faggy. :)

Who is? Whatever. Here is another wonderful soprano. It is not opera, but then other posts here aren't either. It doesn't matter, afaiac. Beautiful voice and beautiful music. Sort of paradise.

Have to disagree with you: Orff carpet bombed the Carmina Burana. For another point of view,
– a page from the original manuscript:

– the Clemencic Consort version (nearly 4 hours!):

but that's of course not "opera" in the canonical sense.

Have also a look at the "Nazi era" part of his Wikipedia page.

I've not been here for a while, but I just know everyone here will love this. When I played it on the "joanna" as a kid, it was just Handel's "Largo". "Ombra mai fu".

Welcome back.

I don't mind the music or singing, but to really appreciate opera I would have to learn a new language.

And I suck at learning languages. I had a very hard time trying to learn to count to ten in Korean. When I try to pronounce French words, my wife covers her ears and screams at me to just stop.

Math, no problem. Science, no problem. Hell, I even aced English and writing courses. History, I soak it up. Foreign languages....F Every time.
We all have our strengths and weaknesses.

But I would have to know wtf is being said. Doesn't work for me otherwise.

But I love hearing a good voice. I liked Jesus Christ Superstar. Showboat was a little long for me. Wicked was very good, and, of course, so was Spamalot. I watched Phantom, and it had its moments. Joseph wasn't bad, but a little preachy. Dunno if they qualify as opera, though.
When Religion becomes State, and breaking the Law becomes a Sin, then Dissenters will become Heretics.

Choir audio is being edited. When it's done, up on Soundcloud it goes.
Maybe I'll post the link in this thread. I dunno.

I'm not really a Mozart fan, but I appreciated this:

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Another classic, "Frost scene" from Purcell's King Arthur (original for bass):

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Love the Wagner clip, AC. Here's a big toon from Pukkini.

So, just got back from watching The Opera version of Macbeth. It was pretty good, the woman who played Lady Macbeth had just the right combo of arrogance and malice to her to make a good Lady Macbeth. And the guy who played Macduff looked like Liev Schrieber. Overall, I enjoyed it.
The Luggage said nothing, but louder this time.

I see that I mentioned choir audio here but I didn't post the link here.
