Thanks to an awesome site maintained by Opera Glass, there’s a compendium of fan pages for many of the world’s best loved opera singers, past and present.

(Yes, and before you get on my case for using “who do you love” in the title, I’m patently aware that it should be “whom do you love?”–I taught English for ten years. Merely trying to tap into a titular Bo Diddley vibe.)

Anyhoo, I love the Opera Glass page of fan pages! It’s given me insights to opera singers I’d never heard of. And I’m having a ball exploring different artists and their pages. And learning a lot in the process.

The following list gives links to fan pages providing information about famous opera people, mostly singers. For a list of Web pages provided by opera people themselves, see Opera People. (That’s also a fun list!)
