Opera unites words, music and staging into one glorious, incomparable soufflé whose recipe for success depends not only on the quality of its ingredients but on the skill of its preparation. What is the secret of its aroma? Why is opera revered as one of the highest art forms ever conceived and achieved by mankind? One answer lies in its tremendous power to move us emotionally; words inspire music which, in turn, enhances the meaning of the words: a fabulous cross-fertilization which touches us more deeply then we can explain.
