MANS A L'ÒPERA!

Find out all the secrets about how operas are made!

An empty stage: anything might happen. Here come the pianist, the stage director, and the singers. The first rehearsal of Donizetti's opera L’Elisir d’amore is about to take place. So off we go! But wait... there's an audience out there! And nothing's ready! No problem... Stand by, technicians! Build scenery, add lights, design costumes, make them... That's better! Now let's look for some props! Bit by bit it all fits together. Put the music, the singing and acting, and the technical stuff together, and we've got a scene, a proper one! In a word we've got... "Hands-on opera"! Mans a l’òpera!
