Kill da Wabbit is 50 Years Old!!!!

A seminal moment in opera occurred when Warner Brothers issued the seven minute cartoon - What's Opera Doc? which I reckon shaped the perception of opera for many generations of audiences - and as an arts marketer a perception I sometimes feel at war with!!! It manages to condense the world of opera - from Verdi to Wagner to seven minutes and for ever will make my stoic Wagner mind grin with echoes of "Kill de Wabbit" when I hear the majestic Ride of the Valkyries.

Happy Birthday - Kill da Wabbit!!
