Opera Elegant Opera Grand Opera Pet

I adore, adore these fotos. So elegant, so full of life and emotion. These people were from the old days when supposedly opera wasn’t about “acting” and “believable”.

Look at the expression and PERSONALITY of these singers. Hard to believe they didn’t bring that charisma to the stage and in their sounds.
