  6. Non-Classical Music
    Just based off of the title alone, many of you can easily see where this is going to head. I know I'm not the only one who's sick and tired of looking at a pop singer (for this first example we're going to look at Whitney Houston) and seeing in the comment section, "OMG Everbody this is a pure...

    What opera would you most like to see in a good production with good singers, but don't think you will? Mine would be Norma. I just don't think we have a soprano who can do te role justice like Callas did. Truly great Normas are rare.

    why is it that, in English, it is the female voice types which are spelled soprano, mezzo soprano, contralto? wouldn't soprana, mezza soprana, etc make more sense?

  16. Opera
    1) is passaggio set in stone or does it vary somewhat within a given fach? (for example, could a dramatic tenor transition at D4 and G4 as opposed to C#4 and F#4?) 2) the Verdi baritone is higher than the dramatic baritone, but more dramatic than a lyric baritone, so would they transition at Bb3...
