'Opera Pop'

You won’t find “Opera Pop” in Webster’s dictionary, but Wikipedia defines it as ‘a sub-genre of pop music that is performed in an operatic singing style, or a song, theme or motif from classical music stylized as pop.’ We asked ABC7’s Scott Thuman if he knew what “Opera Pop” was prior to the performance. “An uneducated guess is that it’s a small group of performers singing popular songs in an Opera style” he answered. “I’m going to say that it would be like Bruno Mars sung in Italian with a classic tone.” We’re going with awesome!

The “Duo Opera Pops” were sensational at the Christmas party hosted at Villa Firenze by Ambassador Claudio and Laura Denise Bisogniero as they voyaged from stage to guests to balconies where they engaged in Christmas carols as an encore.
