Whether the voice is lyric light or heavy, whether it can master coloratura, perhaps even has dramatic potential – in the OperAria mezzo-soprano and alto volumes, singers with a deeper voice and a special talent for the trouser role through to the heroine find everything they need for their performance. Throbbing of the heart? Yes, that's simply part of the game! Feeling nervous? No, because actually nothing can go wrong with OperAria. The best vocal coach for auditions and current theatre practice. Only the voice needs to do its bit. Toi, toi, toi!

OperAria – repertoire anthology of opera arias according to vocal criteria (range, tessitura, specifics, type of aria) with due regard to practical aspects of musical and theatrical nature (style, era, role type, national provenance). Includes comments on the arias, information on the composer, the librettist, the work, the range and of versions or casting, a short synopsis of the contents illuminating the basic dramatic constellation in the context of the opera's plot, and an evaluation from the singer's point of view.

"Our goal is to give the user a modern-day, systematically structured vocal coach who satisfies the demands of present-day theater practice. At long last a consistent repertoire and a well-ordered conflation of respective audition arias for all vocal genres." (Peter Anton Ling and Marina Sandel, editors)
