The discovery of opera can best be described with "The Three Tenors", Pavarotti,
Domingo and Carreras who have tours together to promote the art of Opera to the World:
As much as you want to travel to France for wine tasting and explore the district of Champagne, opera is part of what should be "tasted" as well, I think. So there are clearly serious matters in the World to turn your attention to, but pleasures should be enjoyed to, for recharging your "firepower" capacity to where you've decided to make a difference for the better! Cheers!
