There are a lot of reasons why Opera is not easily accessible -- foreign language, elongated vowels make terrible diction, silly plot line, bad acting and so forth. I love it all. I came across this on youtube and I think you should take a look. Everyone knows the story. It's sung in English with English subtitles with additional explanations. The story is a masterpiece and it's faithful to the original Shakespeare. And the music is pop/rock. It is definitely an Opera -- it's theater and music combined.Hamlet in Rock
