Classical Chromatics with Clare: Opera

Clare Martin
When music alone is not enough to say how we feel, Opera steps in and says it better than any other art form.  Tune into this hour of music and conversation with Clare and her guest Emma Sloman from Auckland's Opera Factory.  A selection of favourite arias from operas including Madam Butterfly, Magic Flute, Aida and some surprises.
