Wagner, Shmagner

While opera is really
The singing of notes art
They'd like to make more dough
For screaming out Mozart.
It could be that singers
Have toned down their bills
But some folks insist they
Pay less for cheap trills.

While pay is eroding
And salaries melting
It seems that the singers
Should tighten their belting.

Performers come cheaply,
None more so than men are.
Opera rates now cost
Two fives for a tenor.
