A guide to the latest in world of opera, Opera magazine – we like titles that keep it short and sweet – comes in a handily small sized edition, making it perfect to take with you to read before the opera starts, or during the breaks (or boring bits).

Included within these petite pages are interviews with important operatic directors and performers, the latest news and features on the art as a whole. This magazine covers a wider view of opera as a whole however, examining in depth opera both in Britain and around the world, with reviews and opinions on live performances and recently released opera CDs.

Opera is undeniably culture. There’s just something about dressing up in ludicrous outfits, going up on stage in front of an audience and bellowing at the top of your voice to an orchestral accompaniment that is intractably culture-esque. Mind you, of course that only works when you’re a seasoned professional – when we tried it last weekend the brass band practicing in the park looked mighty cheesed off. So, it’s not just shouting you see, but structured, precisely tuned and timed, most often in Italian, shouting.

We can’t help but wonder whether, just as the Italian and French languages and accents sound wonderfully exotic and enticing to our British ears (don’t worry, the rest of us is British as well, no Frankenstein-ian monsters here), the same would be true of certain British accents in Italy and France. We suspect that might not be that case, but would absolutely love to see a rendition of any operatic classic performed by an enthusiastic Geordie cast. Perhaps accompanied by the most talented musicians Britain has to offer – buskers. You may laugh, but anyone who has ever stopped and actually listened to the buskers in the stations on the London Underground will be blown away by their quality. You never know, it might go down an absolute storm in the cultural centres of Milan, Rome and Paris. NB
