What exactly are you staring at?
I’m looking at a poster for a new opera. Renee Fleming has been cast in it.
While I am not familiar with opera, I am familiar with her name. Isn’t she a singer from America?
You’ve figured it out. She’s extremely talented. Ron, would you like to accompany me to the opera?
I’d like to, but I’m not familiar with opera. Is it possible for you to tell me more about it?
Yes, of course. Opera is a genre of music that consists of dramatic songs performed solo or in a duet.
