Opera in the Market

In the central food market of Valencia, Spain, some opera singers were dressed as shopkeepers selling fruits and vegetables.

When fragments of La Traviata came over the loudspeaker system, they began to sing.

Watch the faces of the shoppers.

Opera en el Mercado.

Thanks SharonCb.

Sent it to an opera singer friend of mine. She was in a bad mood today. That changed her day.

Oh Sharon, that was such a treat. I love the way the shoppers formed a "theater in the round." What fun!!

I wish they would do this at the Reading Terminal Mkt in Philadelphia.

I think opera companies world wide should pull this stunt, they could sure use the increase in subscribers!

I would love to see Alagna and Gheorghiu pull this off, heh heh

What I thought was charming was the participant who at the very end raised the sign..."ves como te gusta la pera?"
which means in the sense of..."You see - You DO really like opera!"

I'm sure they touched many people there who had never heard those arias before so it is good publicity.

It seems like opera is becoming trendy.
Has anyone seen that UK program Popstar to Opera Star? Some of the pops singers are very surprised at how singing opera is physically very, very different.
