What do you think of when you think of an opera singer? Most people think of a large lady in a hat with horns! But on today's episode you'll learn opera singers come in all shapes and sizes. Now, we know some kids might think of opera as long, loud and boring, but our resident Opera Superfan will make your kid see that opera is actually... cool!
