Never mind the Plots
(Never mind the narrow seats)
Never mind the foreign words

Bring on the deep flowing resounding Love duets
Highlight the Beauty and litheness of Youth
Pour out the Sorrows
Pour out the Laughter and strutting Costumes
Pour out the lingering Emotions
the Passion (with interludes)

Give the Orchestra a chance on its own

Startle . . . use Silence . . . use Space . . . use Color

All: Bigger than LIFE itself
All eliciting loud response.

            O P E R A ! !
