Our opera excerpts feature some of opera's biggest hits and familiar songs you know you've heard somewhere before.
Our Commentaries simplify abstract plots, offer tidbits about the productions, and narrate anecdotal stories of composers and cast members. The Commentaries and excerpts promise to make each opera a more rewarding experience.
