      Glass to read the top 10 are personal favourites... Gounod & Bizet would not make my top 10, but they would make, perhaps, the Top 10 by popularity.

      I like operas. I wish I can visit the Met one day in NYC.

      When I think of Othello and Carmen and all the wonderful opera performed over the centuries I can only think of the raw emotions the actors and singers display in their performances that has had a lasting impact on me and my appreciation for the art.
