  • It's preference. I don't care for Opera unless it's a play of some sort, so I can at least have some entertainment.

  • Well, while it's not my favorite kind of music, there are some operas that I do enjoy. And yes, I do understand what they're saying. Some are in English ;-) Plus, there are many people who speak the language that the opera is being sung in when it isn't in English.

    Also, it does take an incredible amount of vocal range - more than any other style of singing - to sing opera. Any professional singer can attest to this - whether they sing opera or not, and, just like any other skill that takes a high level of talent and discipline (as far as training goes), is admirable.

    Finally, just like any other musical style, or, for that matter, anything else that is artistic, beauty is in the eye (or ear) of the beholder... For example, I can't stand Lady Gaga... but there are those who do, apparently ;-)

  • I have absolutely zero tolerance for Oprah. But Bocelli and Brightman, that's beauty.

  • the big deal is that not everyone can sing like that, and it's been around for centuries
