Great opera singers have enthralled us for over three hundred years. When we see them on stage our ears are filled with some of the finest classical melodies of all time. Live at the Opera makes this precious treasure trove accessible to instrumentalists, too: 15 Italian operatic arias have been individually arranged for flute, recorded by the world-renowned flautist Walter Auer. The accompaniment is supplied by an authentic opera orchestra, and it is also available as a play-along version without the soloist. A historical background to each piece, along with performance tips, is included in this unique collection.
