    Yo, Edward–

    I’m still trying to warm-up to American Musical’s and show-tunes! (wife was a big fan, I have “all of them” on dvd.)
    But I digress—
    Are there any Opera’s, written in English? (or do we call those… Musical’s?)
    Vaguely aware of the Plots of the more famous Opera’s, but otherwise, I’m clueless.

    It turns out that I am not really a fan of opera, but there are a few that I like, and even more opera-music that I like. “Phantom of the Opera” comes to mind for English opera, but I think that the Europeans of yore successfully dominated that genre.
