OVER THE TOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A collection of material that illustrates how opera singers can sometimes
become so in love with their own voices, that they forget that the
composers would sock them in the mouth if they were alive.

 Also included are some rather delusional people who have cracked up
 even the most serious opera enthusiast.

Whether you like it or not, you cannot say this boring!!!!!!
