I grew up listening to opera. My dad loves opera, and he has a great tenor voice, so he's always singing something.
But I never liked it. But today... I found out I do like it.
Okay, let's go back a little in my story...
When I was 12, or 13, my dad used to sing in this choir, and sometimes I would go with him to the rehearsals. They sang a lot of different things, most brazilian popular, old music. But they also had classic music, religious music and a little opera. I remember they were doing Giuseppe Verdi
's "Aida". Actually, I didn't give much attention to the music, but I liked to know it had something to do with Egypt (I love Ancient History).
Years later, I had travelled withmy family to my mother's hometown, and there wasn't anything exciting to do, so my dad and I ended up watching TV. We were searching something interesting to watch in that weekend afternoon - Brazilian tv is annoying - until he asked me to go back to a channel.
