Enter Opera Reviews


Opera is drama or comedy set to music with soloists, chorus on the stage and orchestra in the pit. The combination of stage set design, costumes, action, human voice and music attracts a lot of people.

Instrumental works are music compositions for orchestra set on the stage. The sheer music attracts as many people.

These art forms fulfil longings for classical music and cause sensations invariably.

Since May 2004, we have received excellent feedbacks from panel members, users, friends, foes (!) and other affiliates. Good points have been made about published information, comments, look, navigation, media file quality, aspects related to opera and their educational value.
