This thread is about opera. "Les Miserables" is a musical, not an opera. Two completely different things.

Chill out, dude. I wasn't trying to put you down or anything. I just don't want people who don't know much about the genre, to read your post and think that Les Miserables is a classical opera.

If you catch an obvious mistake in any of my posts, feel free to mention it. I'll be more knowledgeable and better off having the correct info.

The main differences between an opera and a musical:

1. In an opera, virtually everything is sung. There's very little if any spoken dialogue. Whereas in a musical, there's a lot of spoken dialogue with songs interspersed.

2. In a musical, the songs are usually sung in a normal singing voice, with microphones used for amplification. In an opera, microphones are rarely used, and the singing voices are often dramatically exaggerated, frequently loud and booming or shrill.

Don't try to listen to any of these in one sitting, insanity followed by the onset of rigor mortis could result.
