A style of theater/drama in which the characters sing all or most of their lines.

The story is usually simpler than that of movie plots, since it takes longer to sing than to speak. The stories, perhaps melodramatic to our modern eyes, are as varied as movies; from lighthearted, romantic prances ("The Marriage of Figaro", "The Elixer of Love"); heartbreaking romantic tragedies ("La Boheme". "Madame Butterfly", "Aïda"); and some almost x-rated shockers ("Elektra"(much like the Mendez brothers case), "Salome"). Operas are often quite true to life and often deal with some of the most difficult choices that a person can make; matters of life and death, in other words. ...Of course, the plot is much more dramatic than in reality.

Opera relies on voice types (unlike movies, which rely on appearance):

Soprano: highest female voice; plays the heroine, the sweetheart, the victim woman.

Mezzo-soprano: medium female voice; plays the villainess, seductresses.

Contralto: lowest female voice; very rare, usually limited to maids, mothers, grandmothers, and witches.

Tenor: highest male voice: plays the hero, the lover, the doomed hero. Usually romances the soprano.

Baritone: medium male voice; plays the villain, evil prison wardens, and other mean ones.

Bass: lowest male voice; plays priests, kings, fathers, and the Devil.

Opera houses are theaters designed especially for opera... and don't be surprised to find a (rather sexy) tuxedo-clad ghost wandering the dark recesses of the opera house, living his life away on a lake beneath the theater.
Opera is a grim world; there's competition all over for parts... and not to mention some rather unusual situations: tantrums and refusals to do something that the director wants to be staged.

What's the difference between a soprano and a terrorist?

1. The fastest Internet Browser available. Faster than Mozilla Firefox 2 and Internet Explorer 7 in all tests, but still only 1% of people use it.

2. Some gay kind of concert that rich people go to where they have to wear special glasses just to see the stage.
Example 1:

guy 1: Dude! Firefox is the fastest browser on the planet. I can't believe you're still using IE7.

guy 2: Dude!! Opera 9 is the fastest in all tests, and is more cutting edge than both of them.

guy 1: Oh... well I'm just going off of what my Firefox cult tells me. They didn't mention Opera.

Example 2:

Guy 1: Dude! Where did you take your girlfriend yestarday on your date?

Guy 2: I took her to the Opera. I wanted her to assume I was both rich and an intellectual.

Guy 1: Well... Did it work?

Guy 2: Ohhhh yea!

Though it only owns about 20% of the global browser market share, it's quite possibly the best browser available. Unlike Internet Explorer, it's secure. Unlike Firefox, it's fast. Unlike Safari, it actually works. It meets W3C Web Standards, and got a higher score than any other browser on the Acid 3 test.
Opera is the browser of choice, by Jesus Christ himself.

Opera is a web browser that is superior to FireFox and Internet Explorer in many ways. Its a lot more secure and feature-filled than both and unlike FireFox is small and quick, not a horrible resource hog that requires every extention imaginable to be functional and/or useful.

I'm browsing Urban Dictionary using the keyboard and voice recognition found in Opera.

An fast internet browser which only renders standards compliant code. Since a large portion of websites rely on non-standard code, Opera is out of touch with the real world.
In a perfect world Opera would be the browser of choice. Until then, many developers will sadly find it easier to block opera browsers.

The most demanding form of music, singing and theater. It is too much for 99% of all the people alive today because they only have shit in their heads and only two neurons. It is beyond their understanding because they are all sheep: mindless animals that dance to rock, rap and other third class music that will be quickly forgotten in the next 50 years because they don't have the brain power to understand opera. Opera has the best singers in the world, no other singers can match opera singers because opera demands it's singers to sing not only live but with out the help of the microphone and over an orchestra of at least 80 peaces. Opera has only one true goddes: María Callas. Next to her cheap whores like Beyonce, Shakira, Britney Spears, Xtina, Janet Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Lady Rip OFf... i mean Lady Ga Ga and the rest of skanks of that type don't hold a candle. Callas alone with her GARGANTUAN voice could drown all of the other bitches if all of them sang together at the same time.
Pop, rock and specially rap music are trash unlike the refined matchless art call opera.
