I've been listening to Cavalleria Rusticana for two days now, and my love for opera has been rekindled.

When I first got my casio radio/cassette recorder when I was about 7, I used to record classical music, opera, anything with sinatra, armstrong...

I don't know if anyone here knows the story to this, but I think you don't have to to enjoy it.
Cavalleria Rusticana is a fantastic opera, beautiful, dynamic, fragile, powerful, human nature.

Jealousy can be an incredible destructive force, yet inspire some of the greatest works done by man.

Hamlet.

Now, I'm not turning into dude from the actors studio, all I'm saying is, I like opera, at least Cavalleria Rusticana.

And I just got spotify two days ago.

There might be another post from me today, but that will be in the audio forum.

Last week I posted a video there, my first youtube video and it has been, ofcourse, an international sucess of minor proportions!

Thank you.

Peace.

I noticed it's much more interesting once you get what the whole thing is about, like you translate the words and get the bigger picture. I don't listen to opera music but one of my ex's did, and when she spoke of it and tried to explain the details I was really hooked.

opera used to be the music of the people. It's not about the music itself, it's abou the whole experience. Now there's teevee ... I never got into opera, but therer are some bits of pieces I picked up here and there and that I liked. For example the opera the main character in 'Shawshank Redemption' puts on when he has locked himself up in the warden's office. It's by Mozart I believe

Also the opera scene in La vita e bella really stuck with me over the years:
