My Top 10 Female Arias

I am an opera fan. I am but I don’t really know a lot about it. I consider myself a very ignorant person about classical music/opera. However, nothing can stop me from loving it!!

So to be honest, I really hope people will read my post and recommend me more and more arias that I can listen to. That’s the whole reason why I started this blog!!!! To learn more, and to communicate with other opera lovers out there!!

Anyways the list was so hard to make because I have so many other favorites.
Oh and the reasons why I chose these 10 is because I love opera arias that ends and has a Kaboom and a BANG! That’s why most of my favorite arias are super famous, and mostly from the Verismo (a post-Romantic operatic tradition associated with Italian composers) era.

That’s why I think I can’t really find interest in some of the contemporary operas(ex Richard Strauss and etc). I put the youtube links for every aria so, enjoy!

1. Vissi darte Tosca by Puccini 

2. Sì. Mi Chiamano MimiLa Boheme by Puccini

3. Ecco, respiro appena –Adriana Lecouvreur composed by Francesco Cilea 

4. Chi il bel sogno di Doretta – La Rondine by Giacomo Puccini

5. O Silver Moon, “Song to the Moon” – Rusalka by Antonín Dvořák 

6. Les tringles des sistres tintaient –Carmen by Georges Bizet

7. Pace, pace mio dio La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi 

8. Depuis Le JourLouise by Gustave Charpentier, Pierre Perret

9. Una voce poco fa – Il Barbiere Di Siviglia by Gioachino Rossini

10. Quando me’n vo soletta La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini 

For me, finding the beauty of opera is like opening my eyes after being blind for a long lonely time. That’s why I hope in the future I will be able to love and appreciate the beauty of German operas and Russian opera and so on. But for now these are what I love the most.
