One of my biggest regret is to have discovered opera too late in my life to attend a representation in the Parisian venue; I would absolutely love to hear the song made infamous by the Castaphiore in Tintin resonate there.
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the grandeur of Versailles; even its tiny theater rivals the biggest opera houses on the planet. This very surreal place would only be perfected with the eerie Duo Des Fleurs.
Bel Canto’s heroines embody “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned;” they’re fragile but not weak; they’re overwhelmed yet unstoppable; this is why I love it so much. Italian opera houses look the way Bel Canto sounds.
This is a legendary place where some of the most famous Sopranos and Tenors collapsed under the pressure of performing here. The tale of the sad clown feels like the right drama to live up to the legacy of this institution.
For opera fans, experiencing Wagner’s Ring Cycle in Bayreuth is a pilgrimage you ought to do once in a lifetime. The never-ending story of the one ring to rule them all is very dear to my heart as Das Rheingold is taking place along the river I am born on the shores of.
My irrationally passionate love for Diana Damrau goes beyond her ability to make Mozart bearable; she is uncontestably the greatest königin der nacht that ever was and I would absolutely love to watch her deliver a knockout performance where the Magical Flute gained its fame.
What an absolutely insane location for an opera house; a night at the opera is always something special and magical and this place is the embodiment of it. I will never be able to listen my favorite Soprano perform this oh so divine song there but I dream about how incredible this would be.
I don’t know much about Russia opera but this theater is an institution and hearing there the mythical Anvil Chorus would be such an phenomenal happenstance considering Soviet Russia’s history and the specific meaning of Verdi’s masterpiece.
From an architectural feast legendary representations from the greatest singers of all time; the MET is a fantastic place. American composer Philip Glass’ operas never sound as beautiful as when performed at the MET.
There is no more iconic building in Australia than Sydney’s opera house; for this reason it would be a phenomenal experience to listen to one of opera’s most iconic arias in this temple of accoustics.
