    Well the best way I can explain this song is it’s like listening to Ella Fitzgerald singing scat. The singer is using her voice as a musical instrument, and the orchestration is leaving holes for the singer’s voice to fill. It’s more like listening to a trumpet solo than listening to a regular song.

    That helps. It’s certainly an attained taste the way I see it. I love music but I don’t take music as serious as I experience Opera. It’s a bit too technical and moody for me personally. I don’t mean to sound shallow, close minded or dense....but I’ve probably been called worse.

    I’ll let you in on a little secret - going to the opera is like going to a Michael Bay movie. The plot is ridiculous, the acting and sets are over the top but the explosions/music are next level great. To get started don’t try to pick up the nuances of the music, just enjoy the show. It helps a lot if you have a friend who knows the plot to fill you in as the actions unfold. Probably the worst way to start is to listen to “the top 10 opera songs of all time”.
