I’m going to come out sounding like such an uncultured little person here, but I have never seen an opera. Ever.
But I do want to. The library has DVD copies of Il Trovadore and a few other things. I’ve wanted to see Il Trovadore for a long time. I almost grabbed it but I thought maybe I’d better ask here…are DVD operas worth it? It seems like a decent way to introduce myself to the genre, but I’m pretty ignorant about the whole thing.
Will I even enjoy it? I don’t understand a word of Italian, which I think most of them are in???
Any advice will be appreciated.
