opera or ?

so what makes an opera singer these days?

let’s talk vintage!

used to be an opera singer’s voice would/could fill an auditorium seating 4,000 plus, and float over an orchestra with no microphone.  just their trained understanding and use of the human body’s natural resonance. along with a bazillion other minor details.

have a listen.
