    Actually it's my daughter singing opera. I don't know how to download audio or I would. Trust me, you'd all be grateful. ;)

    I love opera. That is wonderful that she has this gift.

    Here are two of my favorites: Orff's Carmina Burana

    If more classical music was performed like this I bet you could get more kids interested.

    You'll all have to give me some slack here, I'm functionally deaf and can't hear any CD without amplification, including my daughter's. With that said, she sings opera in Italian, German, and Russian on her 'master's piece.' Actually there's a Hansel and Gretel bit that may be Dutch. Is there a difference between German and Dutch?

    I'm not claiming any objectivity, but will say that when she sang the Ave Maria a couple weeks ago, in Latin, in an Episcopal Church for a wedding, people I didn't know were crying. The celebrant, a female, asked her after that song was completed, if she could also sing the 'Lord's Prayer?' Being ever my daughter, she said, "That's not in the program." The celebrant said, "Really, if you know it, could you please?" She did.

    The idea that I, a basically deaf person has a child with such a gift? Blown away.

    I believe Dutch and German are different. But what a blessing that must be to have such a lovely voice! Whenever I "try" to sing, my husband just smiles. He also can't carry a tune. But my daughter likes to sing and has a nice voice. God works in mysterious ways...
