Here is a strong arrangement at the medium-easy level that offers you all the excitement of the original overture! With cues given to cover all the wind parts, this really can be done with strings only or as a full orchestra. From the mysterious opening, to the "Can-Can" dance, to the big finish, this one has it all.
