Your best opera songs
I wanted to start a thread for your fav opera songs or just any cool song that sounds like opera

two of my fav songs ever :biggrin:

Turret Opera / Cara Mia (Portal 2)

the fifth element diva dance


I really like Ave Maria




Nessun Dorma.

Hands down! Classic.


Quote:English Translation of "Nessun Dorma"

Nobody shall sleep!...
Nobody shall sleep!
Even you, o Princess,
in your cold room,
watch the stars,
that tremble with love and with hope.
But my secret is hidden within me,
my name no one shall know...
On your mouth I will tell it when the light shines.
And my kiss will dissolve the silence that makes you mine!...
(No one will know his name and we must, alas, die.)
Vanish, o night!
Set, stars! Set, stars!
At dawn, I will win! I will win! I will win!

I quite like opera, I have to pick up my subscription for the 2012-2013 season at the end of the month.

I saw Hiromi Omura in Il Trovatore last year, she was quite good.

My favourite operas are probably Mozart's comedies, like the Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni. They're just overflowing with one sublime aria after another.

And for fun:


Wagner, Steuermann ...
and normally I don´t hear Wagner.... for History-reasons

That was cute.


You might like this (though not strictly opera, per se).
From an Alaskan village close to my heart.


well, never really a big opera fan (they put me to sleep!) but one of my favorite is Vitas.


Yeah...I'm fascinated by the guy's voice (how the fk does he hit those high notes??) Plus, he's kinda hot too :redface:

He uses falsetto, like many counter-tenors.

Only a few male singers today can reach the upper ranges naturally.

not sure if either counts, but still there pretty epic
