Offer patrons the easiest and most rewarding way to enjoy opera! The Black Dog Opera presents the world’s most beloved operas, written by the most respected composers and performed by the most talented vocalists, conductors, choirs, and orchestras.

The introductory disc includes the following:

  • The development and history of the opera
  • The cultural, social, and political atmosphere of the time in which the opera was written
  • The influence the opera had on the society of its time and the opera’s relevance today
  • Character analysis

  • A biography of each lead performer

The other two discs contain the complete opera in its original language.
