Opera is some classy shit.

So Ess Eee Plus Plus, we are some classy people.

It is about time we talk about some classy shit.


So let's talk about opera.


Opera involves fat guys
Luciano-Pavarotti.jpg
and girls dressed as vikings
opera-singer.jpg

And instead of talking everyone sings. Sometimes in modern opera they switch it up and instead of singing everyone talks.


Some operas are by old dead guys. These operas are ok.
Like Fidelio


Some operas are by older dead guys. These operas are also ok.
Like L'Orfeo

Some operas are by old living or just barely dead operas.

These operas are the fucking bomb.
Seriously look at that. That shit will blow your fucking mind

The best opera ever is "I was Looking at the Ceiling and then I saw the sky" by John Adams.

This motherfucking shit right here

Also this motherfucking shit right here.

That is the best fucking shit you've heard all day, don't try to deny it.
Tomorrow I'll be going to basically a collection of bitching songs from bitching operas, as a voice grad student I work with is in it and is awesome.

So SE++, what do you know about opera?

What are your favorite operas?

How often do you go to see operas?

Have you ever seen operas by someone who was born after 1850? Why not? Go see one now.

    I don't listen to much opera, I'm not that big a fan.

    I saw hansel and gretel in new york, in german, and I just didn't enjoy it.

    BUT, this clip that's been to the moon and back always brings a tear to my eye and chill to my spine;

    Looks can be deceiving

    It's amazing to hear that come from that, ya know?

    what Wagner pieces should I most definitely own, considering I will never listen to an entire opera on my iPod probably

    also what are the songs worth owning from Pagliacci

    I'm coasting by on "the best opera album in the world ever" at the moment to seem classy and occasionally wandering youtube

    actually just recommend me a bunch of stuff

    you should watch it, especially since you seem to be on a rap kick lately. at first, you'll be like "this is sooo dumb" but then you start getting into it. i mean midgets and crossdressing and spoken word and ridiculous and oh my

    Did you know that there has never been a viking helmet found that featured horns on either side? The look was popularized in opera as a way to differentiate between villains.

    My uncle used to try to sing along with opera in his car, and the music was always turned up louder than anyone could ever stand. Of couse, he's also paranoid as hell and is impossible to follow anywhere because he has no regard for traffic laws.

    I saw an english production of Die Fledermaus once. That was pretty awesome. Can't say I've seen all that many though, the only others that come to mind are The Gondoliers and The Mikado.

    I saw a semi-opera like two years ago. There were mini stories and they just sang, no acting. Most of them were really depressing, there was one that actually made me cry it was so depressing and the music matched it perfectly.
