Shoot!

Of course, don't expect poetic verses from me! :P I'll be missing those from Shap, though... :(

I do not always have the time,
to put my questions into rhyme.
I shall endeaver, however pathetic,
to ask my questions in manner poetic.

Is it possible, could it be,
that this work is a symphony?
Whether it is or whether it isn't
are vocalists among the performers present?

Lastly, now as Christmas is near!
A time of rejoicing and good cheer!
Whether solemnly, or full of mirth,
does the work celebrate the Savior's birth?

Oh, Dear! It appears I have been beaten to the draw!
My first question I must withdraw!
Trumpetmaster asked, 'ere my verse was done,
The same question as my question number one!

Let me ask, then, in a manner of rhyme,
(And hope I beat Trumpetmaster this time)
If not a symphony, as was asked at the start,
does an orchestra at least play a major part?

'long the Barbary Coast, the sounds of war fade,
Peace had been signed, ports opened to trade.
The USS Epervier then met a stormy end,
had this work at that time been penned?

Tenors, sopranos, altos, and chorus,
Dressed full in costume, singing loudly for us,
Lavishishly set, a true sight to see,
could this work an opera be?

The twentieth Century had just began,
as Verdi was proven a mortal man.
In the year that composer met his end,
had this opera already been penned?

Let me trouble you further 'ere I take a guess,
if the question above should merit a 'yes',
As an opera composer, Verdi's light shown brighter
perhaps than any other, was he the work's writer?

My burning curiosity please help me quench,
Is the opera perhaps sung in French?
To satisfy this mind a little more,
was it written after the second world war?

12. Not sung in French

13. Composed before Sep(?), 1945.

Recap: Opera composed by non-German composer after 27 Jan, 1901 and before the first weeks of September, 1945. Performed in a live European language, but not English, French or Italian. Does not celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
