How can I enjoy opera?

At the Opera

Many opera plots are convoluted and confusing. Before you go to the opera, take a look at a libretto, the “script” for the opera. If you arrive early, spend some time reading your program notes. You might also want to listen to a CD to become familiar with some of the most famous arias before you leave home.
