Opera is to classical what show tunes are to jazz .

Which is to say operas are—excepting a few lyrical standouts and moments of pure musicianship like Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen—an abomination barely preferable to listening to a first year oboe student do scales.

can you say Oklahoma is to Rhapsody in Blue what a bandsaw is to _____?
