You might, for instance, have a soubrette voice to match to a range of arias or even a dramatic mezzo; or you may know of a singer whose voice is like yours or your students, and can look at his or her repertoire for interesting ideas. You may know one aria for a role, but want to see the other arias he or she sings in the opera. With the rich cross-references between roles, voice categories, operas, and singers, you can find and expand the range of options easily and pleasurably.
