A post on Opera

There’s something about opera that I find incredibly soothing. It may be the languages. Not knowing the language allows you to soak in the melody without getting caught up in the lyrics. I feel my heart soar when I listen to it.

Italian aside, even pieces sung in English are fantastic. What is it about those voices?! Having watched a really inspiring program on Andrea Bocelli on TV, I’ve begun to look for his music. He may be labelled a ‘cross-over’ artist, but he’s still a damn good opera singer.

Opera is goosebump music. Give it a chance.

And here’s the Three Tenors singing the same Nessun Dorma with Zubin Mehta conducting.

  1. Andrea Boccelli is one of my favourites. I really like ‘Vivo per lei’ & ‘Time to say goodbye’/’Con te partiro’

    Amazing singer. He was here in Malta some time ago and I’m really sorry that I didn’t book to go and see the concert 😦
