Make Opera Your Valentine 2018

Posted by

It’s our fifth annual challenge to “Make Opera Your Valentine!”

At Opera Bracelets we say our product is for fun loving, passionate opera fans. As such, I encourage you this Valentine’s Day to share a favorite opera aria, moment or duet on your own Facebook page or on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or wherever you like to post things. Maybe you would rather send an email to your friends or, even better, just talk it up in person!

BUT, this is the important thing: You have to tell why you LOVE the piece and give a short explanation of what is happening to the characters in the song. The goal is to give your friends who may not be familiar with opera a little sample of how opera can rock your world! Without context, it is hard to understand why we find opera moving and beautiful. It may seem obvious to us but for people outside of opera they might think a piece is beautiful but not get the emotional connection.

Here’s mine for 2018:  "Au fond du temple saint" from Bizet's the Pearl Fishers

Two friends sing about the moment they first saw the woman they are both in love with. It’s a magical time stopping duet. They swear friendship and brotherhood and that nothing will come between them.

Well, it all doesn’t all go quite to plan in the opera, but the exquisite beauty of this music and the harmony of the two voices together is something that always makes me feel calm and peaceful. It gives me that “now that’s what music is supposed to BE” feeling.

There are many options out on YouTube. I fully admit to letting an hour slip away just listening to different tenor and baritone combinations. It’s one of those pieces that I think may not need translation… it’s just beauty.
