When people tell me that they “don’t like opera,” it’s often because they don’t know the languages being sung, so they can’t relate; it becomes boring to them.
Opera singing is about expressing emotion. It conveys the sounds of fear, anger, loss, a broken heart, hope, love and victory. But you have to want to truly open your mind to listening and empathy.
That can be difficult. It also takes time, commitment, and vulnerability; a willingness to experience a stranger’s emotions. But imagine what we all may learn and how we might grow, if we just MAKE TIME TO LISTEN?
