Night Songs 
01:37pm 15/09/2005
  Here's a request for you all. I'm looking for songs (NOT arias) of all genres and languages, but primarily English, that have to do with the night, including stars, moon, nocturnes, sunsets, and so on and so forth - for all voice types. Here's the short list I have so far:

Stars and the Moon - Songs for a New World
Sure on this shining night - Barber
Nocturne - Barber
Die Nacht - Strauss
L'heure exquise - many composers
Beau Soir - Debussy

There are many, many more, but I'm not coming up with enough, and I particularly need things that are good for younger, less experienced singers, particularly Broadway-type things.

Thanks in advance!

  Hey this looks like a great community and I'd love to talk to anyone who's here. I am 17 and next year I will be going to college to study vocal performance, and of course, I am fat and proud of it! I'd love to talk to anyone who is still here. If you want just come and comment on my journal.

  Hi, I'm trying to find the opera that this quote is from,
"(I) think, mind you I say, I think."

I know that the opera its from was performed at Glimmerglass Opera, for those of you who are familiar with that. If anybody knows where this quote is from, please email me at carebearnumber1@adelphia.net! Thanks!

Hey all, nice to be here.

My name is Margarita and I’ve just joined your ranks. I’m learning my very first opera piece— Caro Mio Ben. (well, I don’t know if it is technically opera, but close enough for me!).

I love singing and am just starting, but I’ve been a fat activist and all around glamour girl for quite some time now. I first really sang in front of an audienced when I was dressed as my drag character Margarita Machismo (yes, I am a biological female, but I wanted to become a drag queen too, so I did.) I sung songs from Hedwig and The Angry Inch and some White Stripes too. I got a wonderful reception and I’ve been dreaming about singing ever since. I want to have a Rock n’ Roll band one day and sing again under the name Margarita Machismo, but I decided I want to train my voice so I can have a bigger range and can do more with my voice without developing bad habits (other than the occasional clove cigarette). So I’m taking voice lessons. I love singing all kinds of music, especially Rock, Jazz and “classical”.

All I can say for now is that singing opera is hard, fun, and very stimulating.

P.S. I didn’t mean for that to come out sounding as dirty as it did. ;P

It's a little quiet in here. Does anyone have an idea of how to recruit people?

Hello, everyone, and welcome to fat_opera_stars!

I've created this community to seek out fellow portly opera singers and see how they are getting along in the Business! I'm hoping this will be a positive, open, and welcoming forum!
