    Default leterme

    Hello! My name is leterme and I have just joined the forum after lurking for some time. I am from Frankfurt, Germany.

    Hopefully my English is okay?

    I like all classical music, but my main interest is opera. I just love La Divina.

    Hello leterme.

    Welcome to TC! I love opera as well, but my main interest is contemporary classical.

    What are your favourite operas?

    Welcome! Your English is much better than my German. And I wish I were better at it; though I'm not a big opera fan, many of my favorite operas are in German: Mozart's Da Ponte operas, Korngold's Die Tot Stadt, Berg's Wozzeck, Schoenberg's Moses und Aron.

    My main musical interest also is opera. Are you familiar with the German opera Martha by Flowtow? That is one of my top 5 favorite operas.

    Ich bin mir ziemlich sicher, dass Ihr Englisch besser als mein Deutsch ist.

    Welcome to the forum. It was the opera discussion that drew me in here for the first time. Having said that, I probably now spend less time there than in other parts. I'm a big Strauss fan ... saw my first Arabella on Tuesday, at the Bayerische Staatsoper. Solid and enjoyable performance, though not spine-tinglingly great. Probably more the fault of the composer than the company. It's not his greatest work, and pales in comparison to the likes of Salome, Elektra, Der Rosenkavalier, or Die Frau Ohne Schatten.

    My tastes in opera are rather polar: Baroque at one end, then late romantic (Wagner)/20th Century at the other. Not much in between.

    Welcome leterme. As someone who spends a lot of time in Germany, I wish my German was as good as your English!
