    Cover your voice more. Classical singers tend to use a "covered", darker sound, with rounded lips, instead of the Smile and bright sound we use for modern pop, rock, and R and B.

    Keep the open throat, but let the lips cover the upper teeth and you'll get more of an operatic tone. Extend the lips to make an even deeper, darker sound. Lower the larynx if you want a deeper, more baritone sound.

    Really open the jaw.

    Mimic some operatic voices from YouTube. Be a mockingbird and copy the tone and style. Use too much vibrato, all the time.

    To blend in with others, use too much air and not enough timbre.

    That should give you a good start.
