I don't particularly like operas however I did quite enjoy Die Fledermaus which in German means a Bat.

This one was composed by Johann Strauss.

I don't like the actual shows, but I like opera music. I do have a favourite, but I have absolutely no idea what it is called.
Just hum the music, Bryony, & I 'might' be able to tell you! Lol!

Humming through text, that will be tricky! I call it the Tom and Jerry opera, because that is where I first heard it, and always associate it with them now.
I fell in love with Phantom of the Opera with Gerard Butler.
WOW! is all I can say.
Am not an Opera 'fan' at all, BUT I felt I couldn't 'fall off the twig' without seeing at least one!

I contacted a dear friend who was very 'arty-farty' & asked her advice, for an Opera to go see for a 'first timer'.

She recommended 'La Traviata', so next time it was being performed, I went along. Yes, I did enjoy, particularly the 'Spanish' part, & I actually did know some of the music!

But it's not my 'scene' really.
Prefer Orchestral, light classical groups, plays, concerts, musicals! There's enough for me to have a 'full' yearly calendar, which has become a 'hobby'!
Love it tremendously!
P.S. Have also seen 'Carmen', twice, once as an Opera, & once a Ballet......loved both!
