Synopsis

Opera can now be enjoyed not just in theatres but through live cinema screenings, on disc or streamed online. The enjoyment of opera will increase immeasurably with a good understanding of how story, character and music combine to create what is seen and heard. Refreshingly non-technical, How to Enjoy Opera reveals what makes opera so exciting and enduring.
