Opera parody….

The concept of the large singer is further perpetuated in this clip of Rene’ Clair’s french parody. And this is 1931!!!  So many modern singers like to insult opera and the singers that came before them.  

Dear old opera, nothing to apologize for  but no one, it seems, has given you a break for a long time. The person posting writes,  

 

 

“First French musical movie René Clair shows us all the little details that can make a opera performance sometimes so ridiculous ( on or off stage) opera parody from first musical movie with singing parts in the plot.”
