Opera doesn't have to hurt. . . and no one has to be afraid (to teach it). This work is guaranteed to change the minds of students who think they hate opera! Famous melodies by Mozart, Rossini, Bizet, Puccini, and Verdi are cleverly set with humorous texts to teach (not spoof) opera origins, composers, roles, and more. This is an instant classic!
