    Russian opera

    Well....I love Russian opera and many years ago, I'm following all this (Russian and Soviet) and I like it more and more... Since Glinka, the beginning...the mighty five, Shostakovich, Prokofiev...

    Do you like it?

    Which composer do you prefer?

    Tchaikovsky? He's great. He composed 10 beautiful operas.

    See you.

    Hi Martin,

    I don't know of any Russian opera that I don't like. Chaikovksky's "Mazeppa" is a staple for me for instance...

    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
