I thought I'd make a thread for fans of opera

I hope that this can turn into a lively discussion about this wonderfully expressive art

Feel free to add links to your favourite operas/performers and discuss them

I'm posting links to pics and videos of the Russian soprano Anna Netrebko. She has an amazing voice and puts youthful energy into her performances



"Libiamo, ne' lieti calici (Brindisi)" from Verdi's La Traviata - performed by Anna Netrebko and Marcelo Alvarez

No problem

I want people to see that opera doesn't have to be something that's boring

It is said that the people who like opera are very complicated and they always hide their emotion, feelings inside them and it's very difficult for the others to understand them Is it right?
Ich habe keine Ahnung about opera

brilliant thread! have had the chance to go and see some operas on stage and I loved them

Laissez nous créer, une arme en amour, une bombe à lumière, un fusil à fleur, une vie sans barrière.
Laissez nous rêver, d’un enfant président, d’un roi sans couronne, d’un Jésus indien, d’un Dieu qui pardonne, même ceux qui l’oublient.

Liberté ― Angélique Ionatos

Anna Netrebko will perform tonight as Susanna in Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro at the Salzburg summer festival.

It will be broadcasted live on Austrian TV and radio and Slovenian radio as well.
