While the Italians have featured with their marvellous nineteenth century arias and stirring orchestral movements, we have also sampled some of the twentieth century’s great singers and heard some surprisingly beautiful singing from lesser known but equally wonderful performers.
Nor have we forgotten our own stunning Opera Australia.
Fortunately, the advent of the DVD has meant that we can see and hear some of the great performances from opera houses from across the world.
