It’s not a stretch to say that opera is an art form that doesn't get the due it deserves. One of the oldest and purest art forms in the world, opera combines theater and music in a way that can’t be matched. What makes opera different than other musical theater, you say? Well, for one thing, there is absolutely no dialog in an opera. The story is told entirely through singing. The true pageantry and the sheer musical beauty of opera is nearly indescribable. You have to see it to truly understand it. That’s part of the problem.

 

It seems like less and less people care about opera. That is a true shame. This could be for various reasons. Opera isn’t marketable in the way that a poppy jukebox Broadway show is. Most of the greatest operas are in another language. The public in general doesn’t even like movies with subtitles, let along a show that is driven by singing and lyrics in a language they don’t know. There is also a bit of a stigma attached to opera as something that only snooty rich people do, or as something PBS uses for filler. This couldn’t be further from the truth. The world as a whole would be enriched by more people giving opera a chance. This is where you come in. 

 

Those of you putting on an operatic performance, those forming an opera society, or even those of you who simply love opera, create your own t-shirt online with WhoopTee and share your love of opera with the world. You can help to keep opera alive by winning new converts at the grassroots  level. If you’re doing a performance, then it’s one more way of keeping your troupe funded to continue giving your community more opera.
