Could you please wait until I've finished listening to opera?

Thanking you in advance for your kind consideration,

How about this, I bring forth the apocalypse whenever I feel like it but I'll make sure baroque operas are not affected. :devilish:

Ah! At work already, Nekrotzar, I see, enabling the poor, weak, defenseless baroque opera lovers. Very clever!

I'm thinking of changing mine to Anne of Green Gables.

What do you think?

I think that's a lovely name if you want to use that. Would you be going the whole hog and change your drivers license, passport and bank accounts too?

I was thinking (never really a good idea) about this and wondered for this to work does the Prince of Hell have to consider me to be a baroque opera as well?

I mean, I need to survive apocalypse as well to listen to the opera

I'm worried as I don't think I'm any where near pretty enough to be considered a baroque opera.

I think maybe Anne of Green Gables in confusing baroque with broke; financial strain due to over purchasing of CDs and broke as in just years of abuse means parts of me keep failing.

Well, at the end of Ligeti's opera Le Grand Macabre the characters survive...so naturally, we'd all still be here after the world ends.

Did you put anything in your will for me....? I'd say I still have another 62 years ahead of me at least (I hope) so I will happily take over going through your Unwatched Pile. :excitement:

I do sometimes think what will happen to my collection when I croak, as no-one in my family is interested. I'm 54 so that may be a way off, and who knows about the technology; but you are welcome to it if you can get it over the ditch.

I've thought about this too and I would like to give them to my old school where I loved the music room where I first listened to records. Though again the CD maybe completely redundant and maybe they have a streaming service there now instead of a record player...

I don't like to think of your passing :(
But I'm sure it's a long long way off :)

And who knows where the postal service will be by then!

I turned 18 earlier this month, so I'm not at all fussed about what happens to my stuff yet.

...I turned 18 earlier this month...

Eighteen years old is such a fantastic place to be

like in a sci-fi movie

[Nekrotzar] you can not possibly imagine the power you have...

I wish at your age I had taken the time to enjoy music more

I sincerely hope that one day soon we will get to hear/experience one of your compositions.

I wish to say to someone in the future

I knew him before he was famous!

I'm a whole lot older (in my 60s) and still have to deal with friends rolling their eyes and groaning when I tell them I'm an opera lover.

I probably know the answer to my question since I went to my first opera when I was 21 and became intrigued from the outset. Throughout my 20s, despite the total 'un-cool' associations, I attended and supernumeraries in lots of operas - regardless what other people might have thought.

However, the stakes are high at your age, please forgive me for asking, but how do you handle such a topic with your friends at 18?

Each time I think of our friend's new screen name, it reminds me that a necrotic leaf is a dying one. By the way, Venus flytraps leaves blacken while they die.

Hoffmann, an acquaintance of mine who homeschools his kids has never let them listen to any rock music, and they're doing great without it. Homeschooled students I meet consistently outperform public school students they when they and the and the public school ones go to college. Two of the brightest, most successful, most talented college graduates I know have never attended any public school.

When I was 18 I had more friends who liked classical music than I do now. We all gravitated together at school.

Well said.

Obviously, my filter is life here in the United States with its seemingly omnipresent hip-hop culture.

Oh, and for my older friends: Broadway Musicals :ohmy: and the occasional sophisticate who loves jazz. :encouragement:

Nekrotzar

A few of my friends can't live without musicals...especially Sweeney Todd

Hoffmann
July 23rd, 2015, 11:45 AM
Well, I would have to agree that Sondheim is a different animal. I saw Sweeney Todd shortly after it came out and will only admit to you that I enjoyed it. Oh, and West Side Story (but that also would be Sondheim..).

The art form, however, on the whole, leaves me cold. As treacly as opera can get, musicals (well, not Sweeney Todd, obviously...) take treacly to new heights.

Nekrotzar
July 23rd, 2015, 12:12 PM
I love West Side Story, although I never really got into Sweeney Todd.........

I like a musical every now and then, I would probably find it rather suffocating to listen to nothing but show tunes for any period of time though! Opera to me seems much more diverse, but I am sure that all the aficionados of musical theatre I know will probably argue for the diversity of style in their preferred art form. :rolleyes1:

Brilliant soprano, dancer, conductor and all round fantastic interpreter of modern opera. She can sing Lulu while dancing en pointe. She also created the role of Agnès in Written on Skin.

You forgot pianist. She can play the piano while she sings. Multi-talented amazing woman, and also intelligent, personable, friendly, and very pretty.

Here is her interview with Opera Lively: [clicky (http://operalively.com/forums/content.php/862-barbara-hannigan)]
