I rather like this early Edwardian tin..approx 2" by 4 " ..the recommendations make it ..The last one on the front  brings to mind (with Googles help) a few silly jokes

Opera is when a guy gets stabbed in the back and instead of dying he sings

opera has made me consider suicide

When an opera star sings her head off, she usually improves her appearance

I dont mind what language an opera is sung in so long as it is in a language I dont understand

Marriage is like singing in an opera.It looks easy until you try it

How do you put a sparkle in an opera singers eye?..shine a torch in their ear (sorry about that one)

 the last one Miss Clara Butt was a famous Victorian contralto opera singer..so I thought a few  silly jokes would liven the listing up . I remember going to one of her concerts when I was 12

It's a nice tin
I think you've overestimated the number of people on here who've heard of Clara Butt.
But are you about 110 years old Kennett? I didn't think Clara Butt gave many performances after about 1930.
