Everyone is on the French Opera topic, but no one seems to care about Italian Opera topic...

I think it's the initial question about opera as background music that kills the thread.  "Italian Opera as Background Music" might have been a better thread title, though I don't know if the response would have been better.  There's certainly plenty of discussion of Italian opera in other threads:  485 posts in the "VERDI King of Italian Opera" thread, 75 in the "Puccini vs. Verdi" thread, 72 just in the "Aida" thread, etc.

ah thanks, I thought it was some other underlying issue. Like I had a slight feeling that maybe the vast majority of Opera is Italian, and that the question 'Opera in Italian' kind of absurd is, because it's the main medium. I don't know what the main medium of Opera is. What is it? I'l look it up, hang on.. Oh god damn it, I looked it up. Opera Started it Italy!!! Haha. This makes the thread seem even more silly.
