I Love Opera Music

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 51 People

    Just Love.

    It's a yearly ritual for me and my dad: we choose an opera to see together (usually Italian!). Something about opera moves me. It's beautiful and emotional. I love how the singer's voices are like instruments and how the orchestra is the accompaniment. I love the drama, the...

    The Phantom of the Opera

    The 1st time I watched this in Singapore, I was amazed. I never thought I like opera music, but WOW, the songs just blew me away. Andrew Llyod Webber IS a genious. The choice of lyrics, costume and singers is perfect.

    Looking Inside Mozart's Brain

    I like opera because it's a bit like looking at a composer's external hard drive -- the workings of his brain that he left behind when he died, the remnant of his genius. The first time I felt this was in watching Mozart's and DaPonte's Don Giovanni. I realized that what I'm...

    I love the old and new emo music. I don't care about what's real emo and what's not, it's all really good and unique. Besides music evolves over time
