A 90-minute Crash Course to Mozart’s Opera

Imagine Mozart entering the concert hall and discover the electric guitar, the drum set and the piano on the stage, and outcomes his hit tunes with an unexpected twist. Would he be offended, thrilled or puzzled about what is going on? Or perhaps he would fall in love with the new-found electric guitar and called himself a fan of jazz?
