I think listening to opera has some place. I mean I would have loved to witness Pavarotti sing Nessun Dorma, but that isn't possible anymore. Not to say I haven't been making strides to actually attend formal events, but I think being able to listen to a number of renditions is a good thing especially by people that may no longer be alive.

I don't disagree - but it's still a visual medium.

I listen to film scores, too. But I don't for a minute think it substitutes for watching movies.
