    It's a fun, innovative approach to learning about the world of opera quickly and in a way that's absolutely true to the original.

    The crucial moments, the plot, the main characters, the emotions, the great arias, the tragedies and the love affairs in the history of opera are converted into stories in comic form.
    The texts of the opera librettos are condensed into a version that maintains the essence of the original text.
