Hi, opera questions. 4 and 21

Hi, opera questions. 4 and 21

4-I would pick La Boheme as my last opera because it was my first opera and it got me into opera thanks to my grandma buying me tickets. I’d love to see Anna Netrebko as Mimi and Jonas Kaufmann as Rodolfo <3

21-The W H O A moment for me was walking into the theater when I saw La Boheme and hearing the orchestra warming up. My little 13-year-old self was thinking “Oh my gosh I am actually here and wow wow wow I’m at the opera and I could do this one day aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa”

2, 5, 6

2, 5, 6

2- Jonas Kaufmann as Rodolfo, Jonas Kaufmann as Cavaradossi, Jonas Kaufmann in general

5-Where do I begin? Mimi’s death in La Bohème, pretty much all of Acts 2 and 3 of Tosca, THE END OF OTELLO😭😭😭. For actual arias, either Vissi D’Arte or Un Bel Di Vedremo

6-Hmm. Probably Madama Butterfly and Turandot because of how dated they actually are :/
