    Wonderful Learning Tool

    This 2 disc CD set is a beautiful introduction to all things Opera. Featuring 39 opera excerpts and over 150 minutes of music, this CD set features music from well known to lesser known operas. There is also a 762 page illustrated book that teaches you about the composers, key musical terms, operatic terms, stories behind each opera and so much more.

    As a homeschooling Mom, this particular set was a huge benefit when we studied opera in music appreciation. It allowed me to not only give our kids a wide variety of opera music to listen to but they were able to easily find the opera they were listening to in the alphabetical book and read much more about the piece after they listened to it. No matter if you are an opera novice or an opera extraordinaire you will certainly enjoy this 2 disc CD set from Naxos.
