  3. W. H. Auden:

    If music in general is an imitation of history, opera in particular is an imitation of human willfulness; it is rooted in the fact that we not only have feelings but insist upon having them at whatever cost to ourselves.

In real life they would all be bores, even Don Giovanni.
