    I don't really like to do favourites. Anybody and anything can be extremely moving at any given time. All I have to do is enjoy.

    I love opera.
    One of my favorite singers in Thomas Hampson. He is an American baritone. Check out his website at http://www.hampsong.org/
    As for favorite composer, I love anything by Puccini. I also like the operas by Gian Carlo Menotti.
    My favorite operas... hmmm... Carmen (Bizet), Tosca (Puccini), The Consul (Menotti).
    Favorite voice type: bass or baritone. I also like duets with a bass and a lyric soprano. Also a tenor/contralto duet is very nice to hear.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    Agreed.

    Some that I listen to fairly often (they're all pretty famous):

    1. Magic Flute (Mozart) - Queen of the Night's Aria/"Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen" ("The vengeance of Hell boils in my heart") is an absolute CLASSIC.
    2. Carmen (Bizet) - Habanera, Les Toreadors
    3. The Tales of Hoffman (Offenbach) - Olympia's Aria... even better when watched cos the doll performance is very amusing.
    4. Rinaldo (Handel) - "Lascia ch'io pianga" I can cry to this when I'm in the right mood.
    5. Rigoletto (Verdi) - La donna è mobile
    6. The Barber of Seville (Rossini) - Figaro's Aria

    Might add more later.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.
