Notes & Reviews:

Opera music can heighten the tension of drama, add passion to a romance, or even underscore the antics of a comedy. Beyond its critical role in setting the mood as background music in many memorable movie scenes, opera often plays a leading role in the story, as the fictional characters of the screen are drawn to this timeless music just as thoroughly as are thousands of opera fans in the real world.
