It’s our twelfth 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 social media , Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or wherever you like to post things!
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. Without context, it is hard for those less experienced with opera to understand why we find opera moving and beautiful.
The goal is to give your friends, who may not be familiar with opera, a little sample of how opera can rock your world! In this way, we become opera ambassadors, sharing our love of this art form and maybe peaking the interest of others who might not know much about it.
Here is some sample text for your posts to copy and paste to get started: I'm participating in "Make opera your Valentine" to spread love and knowledge of opera. #MakeOperaYourValentine the clip I have chosen to share is...
Here’s mine for 2024: I will post it on social media February 14.

Calaf is in love with a really difficult princess - I mean you have no idea! If she discovers his name before dawn she will kill him. But Calaf has a gut feeling that he will win ("vincero") and as he sings under the stars, he just wishes dawn would hurry up and get here!
