    I didn't see any name calling.

    Afraid not. Was just reacting to the title and a few of the first posts. I should have looked on to post #6, which would have clued me in that the title misleading since it is not opera that is stupid, but some of the productions that are stupid.
    "All of Italian opera can be heard in [Bellini's] "Ah! non creda [mirarti]."
    --Renata Scotto in "Scotto, More Than a DIva."

    Opera is stupid, especially when it's part of Warner Brothers cartoons. I mean, come on, a singing rabbit?

    I didn't call you a name, but since you chose to ignore everything I actually said, I guess this is as good a place to stop as any.
