What made you get into opera? :)
First of all, my parents - they took us to the opera with my sister a lot when we were teeny tiny kids (most of those operas were not what you’d call kid-friendly lol, but I loved it anyway), we watched Bergman’s Trollflöjten and listened to Solti’s last Zauberflöte recording a billion times (this is also why Zauberflöte is one of my all-time favorites). Then I kind of stopped listening to opera for a decade and I really can’t tell you what was it exactly that got me back into opera again. Mezzos (Joyce DiDonato and Elina Garanca, respectively) and pants roles, probably, and the joy of discovering pieces and singers and composers and everything, I really can’t point to one thing and say “yes that’s it that was it”. Lurking around the tumblr opera fandom did help a lot, though.
