Re: Is it just me?
Heh, most people, including my brother, have that reaction to my love of opera. I'm getting taken to see Traviata for my birthday in feb though, I'm incredibly excited as it'll be the first opera I've seen outside of the television.
I love the stories and the music and the drama... and the music really is wonderful. certain arias, I never get tired of listening to them- like Dido's Lament. I love that song! Have you ever heard any of Madame Butterfly? It's quite well known and it's lovely.
