I agree with Julie. MOST performers who are classically trained in Opera etc. might not be able to find work in alot of musicals. Sure they are great at singing, but if they learn that style of singing from a young age they may find it hard to sing any other way. And trust me I do not want to listen to Good Morning Baltimore from Hairspray or Suddenly Seymour from Little Shop performed by Opera singer. Some performers can do both well, but most will find it difficult.
Just my opinon though.
