The eyebrows are for effect. Most people won't understand the words sung during an opera, and very few can read lips (especially when the mouth singing is so wide and open for so long). To cope with this, stage performers, especially musical and opera singers, are taught to express themselves through their face. The guy was singing a lighthearted comedic number, hence the goofy eyebrows.

Coolio.. He's got quite a bit of control over his voice. I am willing to bet that his speaking voice is also high, but probably still rather masculine.
Having said that..WTF is up with the eyebrows?

^ The last castrati actually died 1922 i meant to add, the style of the castrati began to decline in the late 18th century.

Not that shocking. Go check out Vitas. Now *that* is a high pitched voice. Still can sing relatively well, I must say. ~ Vindicate

Reminds me of this guy/gey ~ Kongen

... that is vitas... heh... Anyways, the whole scary high voice kinda loses its effect after about the 5th time it happens... its ok you'll recover
