Who says opera can't be fun and enjoyable for kids?
The world-renowned soprano Joan Sutherland is joined by 3 lovable puppet friends in these fun-filled mini-versions of 2 treasured opera performances: Faust and Rigoletto in a special way that the whole family is sure to enjoy. Sutherland introduces her puppet audience to the story behind each opera and then performs their music highlights in complete costume with elaborate sets. At key moments the Dame returns to her puppets to reveal more about the opera's plot.
As Maguerite in Faust, Sutherland falls in love with someone who sold his soul for eternal youth and pleasure. In Rigoletto as Gilda, she is in love with the flirtatious and corrupt Duke of Mantua to the despair of her father, the court jester. 90 minutes.

This video is for you. Have you ever been sitting at home, with no friends, and no one to dry up those lonely tears? Well look no more! You'd be surprised at the amount of joy each puppet friend brings to the screen, and the chemistry between Faust and Rigoletto is magnificently enchanting. You'll love this movie like you love your first born! However, don't be fooled by the title, this film is not for the faint of heart. If you truely are afraid of the opera, be weary and use caution because you may just find your alto turning in to a soprano after the second act.
