List Rules Operatic bass-baritones only. No basses.

Bass-baritone is an accepted category nowadays. The lower-pitched voice types in opera may be confusing, though. The bass-baritone tends to be older and wiser than the baritone, less ancient or supernatural than the bass -- but these are very rough generalizations; the best thing is to listen and enjoy the wonderful impact and variety of these great singers!
