Did you know?

  • During the seventeenth century, women were not allowed to sing onstage, not even in a chorus. As a result, castrated males, or castrati, would sing the soprano/mezzo/alto parts. 

  • After an opera, it is appropriate to yell bravo for a man, brava for a woman, bravi for two or more singers, and brave (BRAH-vay) for a group of only women.

  • Opera history is often divided into pre-Mozart and post-Mozart because of the way he transformed the art form.
