Word of the Week

by Melissa Wimbish

As we celebrate National Opera Week with the First Annual Operagasm Awards and fun Q&As from several thriving opera companies, let us remind ourselves of the profession that requires the hardest workers. Blue collar!

opera – the word opera means “work” in Italian (it is the plural of Latin opus meaning “work” or “labour”) suggesting that it combines the arts of solo and choral singing, declamation, acting and dancing in a staged spectacle. (Definition provided by Wikipedia)
