A form of 'non-music' theater. Music wasn't invented until 1980 odd with the creation of rap.

Women weren't allowed on stage during Shakesphere times which is when most old people today came from. So all the women in bikinis, riding in the cars in each opera'like you see on MTV were really men! Which means non-heterosexuals enjoy this.

Those creatures on strange pierce the ears of anyone apart from the deaf old people that listen to this. Only old people like opera and all old people are deaf. Coincidence? If they had rap to listen to when they were younger, maybe they would be living normal lives pinpim' thier rides and hoes and shooting one another. Instead of watching castrated gay men. The tennors sing (NOT rap!?!?!) at a high pitched voice which means they are gay and thus disobeying the word of god and therefore it is your duty of moral Catholics to burn them using sticks of fire.

Opera can be distingused by it's lack of turntables, abense of flow and non-gangsta style lyrics. Opera also consisted of very few black people because everyone was racist back then and all the black 'singers' weren't allowed to wear the same pretty hats as the white scum we allow to share our air.

Most Opera tells a FAKE story because it is all a staged play unlike Vanilla Ice who speaks from the street and from the heart. The story is written by an old person that doesn't even know what 'shiznit' means (Yes, some people are that uneducateded.)

This is every Opera song.
"AAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
That isn't rap! That's just noise! To all you old people who were born before 1970 and saw the big bang happening. Get some real music like Nelly and forget this so-called 'musicial theater' ever existed. Theater is for old, wrinkled art people anyway who don't like girls. Do rappers do theater? No, they do movies because everybody likes 'Cradle 2 the Grave" except my mother but she is dead now.

Opera is better than Internet Explorer. Actually, snail mail is, too.

A very fine browser, perhaps the best one out there, with nicer users than Firefox.
Opera's users don't try to forcefully convert people like Firefox's users.

A style of theater/drama in which the characters sing all or most of their lines.

The story is usually simpler than that of movie plots, since it takes longer to sing than to speak. The stories, perhaps melodramatic to our modern eyes, are as varied as movies; from lighthearted, romantic prances ("The Marriage of Figaro", "The Elixer of Love"); heartbreaking romantic tragedies ("La Boheme". "Madame Butterfly", "Aïda"); and some almost x-rated shockers ("Elektra"(much like the Mendez brothers case), "Salome"). Operas are often quite true to life and often deal with some of the most difficult choices that a person can make; matters of life and death, in other words. ...Of course, the plot is much more dramatic than in reality.

Opera relies on voice types (unlike movies, which rely on appearance):

Soprano: highest female voice; plays the heroine, the sweetheart, the victim woman.

Mezzo-soprano: medium female voice; plays the villainess, seductresses.

Contralto: lowest female voice; very rare, usually limited to maids, mothers, grandmothers, and witches.

Tenor: highest male voice: plays the hero, the lover, the doomed hero. Usually romances the soprano.

Baritone: medium male voice; plays the villain, evil prison wardens, and other mean ones.

Bass: lowest male voice; plays priests, kings, fathers, and the Devil.

Opera houses are theaters designed especially for opera... and don't be surprised to find a (rather sexy) tuxedo-clad ghost wandering the dark recesses of the opera house, living his life away on a lake beneath the theater.
Opera is a grim world; there's competition all over for parts... and not to mention some rather unusual situations: tantrums and refusals to do something that the director wants to be staged.

What's the difference between a soprano and a terrorist?

A superior form of entertainment in which most of the characters' lines are sung. Not many young people like opera, because their brains are so clogged by rap and sex that they are unable to appreciate the dignity and beauty of opera.
One famous opera is Don Giovanni, by Mozart.
