Television Has Taught Me

Television has taught me that opera just isn't as hard as people make it look.  I mean, it sounds impressive, sure.  And those ladies in the viking hats, they make it look like you could die if you attempted it.

But I've watched a few episodes here and there of *insert country's name here*'s got Talent, and apparently people who sing opera well are not all that uncommon.  That opens up a whole new way of thinking, a whole new realm of possibilities.

Maybe I sing opera well.  Maybe you do.  Do you?

I'm not going to try and sing opera, because I like to let the possibility live.  I really like to listen to people sing it, for about 2 songs.  There's just something soothing about not being able to understand these kids and their crazy singing languages.  They also make me cry.  And sometimes, I just love a good cry.

Charlotte and Jonathan can sing opera.




Pittsburgh Native (woop woop!) Jackie can sing opera.




Susan Boyle (can't leave her out) can sing opera.




Sung-bong Choi can sing opera



So the question remains.  Can you sing opera?

Living in the realm of possibility,
TFW

  1. It really has been amazing seeing these people appear from all over the world and show talent that no one else knew they had. It does make one think about their own talents.
