I see. I'll go with: If you are a novice, the movie will help you love and understand opera. If you are an expert, you might appreciate seeing some aspects of opera in a totally different light.

The movie's author agreed with you too. And he said it is just his habit and style to write things sometimes without going deep into details. Your variant is more appropriate for people who visit my website.

Thank you very much, Barry!  :)

You're welcome, Dmitry.  I'm happy to help.  Your final version is well-written and comes directly to the point.

Could you correct the text please? I mean remove mistakes  2ch

This website is on opera only. It contains libretto in different languages including line-by-line translations, a little information on composers and operas, pictures and links. I do my best to make this website well organized and useful for all opera lovers.
The website is continually growing: new composers, operas and librettos are coming; new site features are being added.

This is how I would do it but maybe Kathy, our resident editor will see it and have some better suggestions.

That sounds just about perfect, Kelley.  :)  I might use focuses on instead of is about in the interest of using a stronger verb (i.e., "This website focuses on opera only"), because I always had "Use strong verbs!" drilled into me, but your rewording is basically perfect.

All the same pronunciation :
nurse
curse
terse
hearse
purse
verse
worse

Now repeat after me...

The nurse pursed her lips when she saw her lover's hearse. She wanted to curse but instead said a terse verse.She felt even worse.
