Adele’s music is from an aria (song) called “Mein Herr Marquis.” This aria is in an opera called Die Fledermaus, which means “The Bat” in German, and was written by Johann Strauss II in 1874. It is a comical opera that takes place in Vienna, Austria. It would be a great first opera for your child!
Carmen’s music is from the eponymous opera Carmen, written by Georges Bizet in 1875. The opera takes place in Seville, Spain, and the aria is called “Habanera.” The beautiful Carmen sings this in the first act of the opera, mesmerizing the others in the square.
Aida’s music is from another eponymous opera, Aida, written by Giuseppe Verdi in 1870. This aria is called “O patria mia” which means “Oh, my country” in Italian. She sings this aria in Act III, right before she meets with Radamès, her forbidden love interest in the story.
