    Opera singers are singers who sing opera, so because it particularly is that out of ways! they may well be sopranos, mezzo-sopranos, contraltos, tenors, baritones or basses. Many opera singers additionally sing lieder; it particularly is to assert, songs [often] with in basic terms piano accompaniment, and sung in small[ish] stay overall performance halls. All singers would desire to be waiting to undertaking their voices, no remember if in a huge opera homestead, or a small auditorium. Projection isn't comparable to quantity, as experienced singers (no longer in basic terms sopranos) would desire to be waiting to fill a corridor with sound, even whilst making a music quietly, and that may no longer situation-free. aside from voice education, singers would desire to be familiar with a minimum of three languages: Italian, French and German. And definite, opera demands some years of prognosis.

    Brief note as your first answerer seemed awfully harsh.

    Yes they are correct Bocelli is not an opera singer but you never said they were,rather classical singer which is correct.

    Anyway sorry I can't help you further as I'm more of a symphony kind of guy and this is not my forte.

    Good luck

    There are several that I can think of right off of my head: Jose van Dam (baritone), Bryn Terfel (baritone), Kiri Te Kanawa (Soprano), Roberto Alagna (Tenor), Placido Domingo (Tenor), Hans Hotter (bass), Maureen Forrester (Alto), Thomas Hampson (baritone), Ruggero Raimondi (baritone), Olga Borodina (Soprano), Dmitri Hvorostovsky (baritone), Kurt Moll (bass), Kirsten Flagstad (Soprano), Frederica von Stade (Mezzo-soprano), Pavel Chesnokov (bass), Mei Zhong (soprano), Craig Priebe (baritone), Joseph Levitt (tenor), Russel Watson (tenor), just to name a few. You can YouTube any of these and find performances of them. You can also YouTube or Google any of the voice types (in parentheses) and find more people in each class.

    Andrea is not an opera singer. Pavarotti was and there are many more. Listen and learn instead of asking.
