    Abit heavy going for me, a whole Opera although I do like some of the songs. I love Gilbert and Sullivan operetta's though and have gone to see a couple at the theatre. (while other students were getting drunk at nightclubs I was at the theatre watching The Mikado!!:eek:)

    My all time fave opera has to be 'Carmina Burana' (sp?) It's such a powerful piece, I'd love to see it live. I like some of Wagner's opera's, I watched the whole ring cycle when it was on tv.( I don't think I'd have enjoyed it so much without subtitles.)
    I also like a bit of the old G&S too.

    Folks always ask what particular pieces are about and the enclosed piece, (The Flower Duet) taken from Delibes 'Lakme' is beautifully explained by Catherine Deneuve to Susan Sarandon in the film 'The Hunger' starring David Bowie.

    For all you Dracula geeks out there it's a tale of Modern day Vampirism with a little science fact.
