Do you love opera? Hate it? Indifferent? Give Tiffany the length of a mini-episode and you might finding yourself warming to it.

Tiffany tells how she fell in love with opera at age 12, and how her passion for the art form goes hand in hand with her passion for Italy and the Italian language. She also explains where to start your exploration of opera (in a word: Puccini).

Music featured on this episode:

O Mio Babbino Caro from Gianni Schicchi by Puccini (with Kiri Te Kanawa)

Dunque è proprio finito...? from La Bohème by Puccini (with Mirella Freni and Luciano Pavarotti)

Va Pensiero from Nabucco by Verdi (with the chorus of Teatro dell'Opera di Roma)
