Hey everyone!

This is going to sound like a rather silly question to those of 
you who are also voice majors.  I don't listen to a lot of opera 
outside of something I'm working on or assignments in classes, 
and one of the reasons for this is because I'm not fluent in any 
foreign languages.  This isn't as much the case with art song, 
but following a 3-hour Verdi extravaganza in which you can't 
understand any of the words can get a little dull (and as much as 
I appreciate the music, I don't want to just skip to all of the 
arias.) With that said, does anyone know a good place where 
accessible opera libretti and translations can be found so that I 
can enjoy more operas?
