If you're into supporting the next generation of opera singers take a look at this! I need to get between what I earn at my job and what you can donate $1,100 in order to sing Suor Angelica in Rome. Opera is fabulous, and so are you. Please consider taking a look, especially if somebody helped...
I would really like to have the full libretti for at least the most common operas, but searching on Google and this forum in particular reveals no book or website that has everything. Can you folks confirm this is accurate? I'm just out of luck?
I can hardly believe none of you opera fools out...
I love it, but it is 2 1/2 hours.
That can be a real hardship on some folks.
Movies, plays, shows have them.
And it might be unhealthy to sit that long.
Maybe during one of the scene changes?
What do you think?
