This is wonderful. If you haven't time to sit through a whole opera, it gives some glorious excerpts of some of the best loved operas, and even a few lesser known ones. Why is that jaw-dropping chorus from Les Comptes De Hoffmann not played a hundred times more often? It stops me in my tracks every time. And Mon Coeur Ouvre a ta Voix, Che Faro Senza Euridice, O Mio Bambino Caro... a lovely selection, perfect if you're not sure whether or not you like opera. After listening to this, you should feel pretty sure that you do.
