What's your favorite Opera?
I like carmen, just for habanera
Carmen is a great opera.
I like Stravinky's Opedipus Rex (with libretto by Cocteau) a great deal. It's incredibly powerful stuff. The version I saw which was staged by Julie Taymore was AWESOME! Her work is so inspired!
boheme of course.. if u can't love boheme then there isn't the slightest ounce of compassion/romance within you.
anything by puccini is always good. verdi of course. no wagner though!
My favorite all time Opera is - Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi. Anything by Rossini, Puchini, Verdi and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is GREAT!
Here is my Top 10 Operas of all time. These are all VERY MOVING and VERY BEAUTIFUL, enjoy!
Barber of Seville
La Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro)
DIE ZAUBERFLOTE (The Magic Flute)
Benjamin Britten's "Turn of the Screw"
