I read somewhere that somebody organized an Akhenaten opera. So why can't we make one? Just choose one person, and write down the lyrics. It will be so fun! At first, who do you want for your character?

Only if I can be Amenhotep III, and have a dominating part throughout the whole opera (as firstly I am the one who actually has the original opera, I am amenhotep in every quiz and I am probably the only one here who can sing an opera!).

I think....

Akhenaten - Tenor
Nefertiti - Soprano
Tiy - Alto
Kiya - Soprano
Tutankhamun - Tenor
Ay - Bass
Horemheb - Bass
Amenhotep III - Tenor

Hows that?

Sounds good, Si-amun.

I guess I could try writing some lyrics,but I would need help. I have seen alot of musicals and plays,but only one opera.

It might end up sounding like Broadway.
