We seem to think that so much of classical music is pure and noble but in my practice there seems to be a few common themes in Opera. Opera may very well be more Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll than what it is given credit for.
- There seems to be some sort of love triangle in many operas.
- There seems to be a skirt chaser of some sort in many of them.
- Seduction, Lust and Temptation seem to be a recurring theme.
I must say it seems to be done in a really tasteful and non vulgar manner but is there a certain amount of adult themes inherent to the genre or am I just getting my wires crossed?
