Pssst! What’s going on?!
WHAT IF THEY SING IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE?
Following the action in operas sung in languages other than English is easy – just watch the projected surtitles above the stage for the translation…and yes, you read correctly, suRtitles. Not to be confused with subtitles, surtitles are read above the action. In a nutshell, surtitles are up and subtitles are down – too easy!
HOW CAN I FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE OPERA I’M ATTENDING?
