Is that the scrooge story?
I don't think I've ever been to a ballet. But I think I rather go to a ballet than an opera.
Really I should do both since I'm all about live events.
Actually, operas are not that bad. They actually usually have more action than ballets, with more interesting plots, and more interesting set changes, etc. although ballet bodies are better. It's just like a subtitled movie - there are subtitles above the stage so if you don't know Italian, you still know what is happening.
I love ballet. But if I could only watch ballet or opera for my entire life, opera.
-completely lost- my so called parents think ballet is for gays and cat ladies, and opera is for old men and their fifth wives. so naturally i know nothing
but I thought all males in ballet were straight...they get to hang out with scantily-clad women all day long...really...fit...women...
ummmm they meant the women. because my aunt goes to ballets. and the old men thing came from my uncle going to operas with his fifth wife and mistresses
actually majority of men in ballet are not straight
for what it's worth
Your so-called parents are very narrow-minded. awww
I don't think that's true any longer.
yeah, they are. luckily i have jm1511 and zelty as eparents. and i read a lot of banned books when i was little.
I wasn't implying I wouldn't like opera just sayin' I would prob like ballet more
well, I'd say less so now, but i'd still say a large percentage are
i'm a big ballet fan,
Good for you. I think that the average person would prefer opera more still, because more action, easier to follow, etc.
I would choose opera as well.
Mostly because I adore the costumes and musical and theatrical performances.
Secondly because I sing dramatic and lyric coloratura, whereas I can't dance to save my life.
I do love ballet as well, but the above is why I would choose opera.
I would guess ballet had more action and opera would be more standing around while singing
Frank T has good taste
ballet is better by a mile
more to see, and don't have shreiking down your ear
This is what I show to anyone who says opera is just standing.
I think the difference between ballet and opera is similar to the difference between a novel and a poem. Even if they are about the same thing, one approach is more direct and "generally entertaining".
and that is ballet
more skill involved
I liked that scene in The Fifth Element
I practice upwards of 2 hours to "shriek".
It is nearly impossible for average singers to reach an F6.
And one song calls for a A#6.
Most people's heads would probably implode at singing that note
Don't get me started on "skill".
i call it shreiking
stepping away from this...
