Well, I certainly wouldn't know anything about Wagner, Tannhauser or opera if a friend hadn't made my a fan, almost by force when I was 20 or 21. Years later when I moved to NYC for ten years, I managed to see a lot of opera buying cheap standing room tickets. Lincoln Center, where the New York City Opera and the Metropolitan Opera houses are located, was only a couple of blocks from where I lived. I became a big fan and watched opera when it was on TV and listened to records of it all the time, too. I checked libretti out from the arts library to look at while I listened.

That was so long ago it was before videos or DVD's, when people just could see things in person or on TV.
