I absolutely love opera. One can appreciate this amazing genre for it's level of difficulty, as one is delivering a song from the soul, however; one can appreciate it as a work of art and ability to take a song and project, making the audience believe it as a result. Opera is filled with so many beautiful and unique arias, however; if I had to choose only 10 (which is hard enough), I would choose: 1) O Mio Babbino Caro by Puccini 2) Der Holle Rache Kocht In Meinem Herzen by Mozart 3) Habanera by Bizet 4) Addio Del Passato by Verdi 5) Pace Pace Mio Dio by Verdi 6) Ave Maria by Schubert 7) Zeffiretti Lusinghieri by Mozart 8) Chacun Le Sait by Donizetti 9) O Nitt're Nicht, Zum Leiden Bin Ich Auserkoren by Mozart 10) Caro Nome by Verdi What are your top 10 favorite opera arias of all time?
