This learning scenario will introduce students to opera and its main features (libretto, aria, recitative, solo ensembles, choir). By hearing musical examples, they will recognize the main features, compare it with popular music and in the end, they will be writing their short operas. In that way, they will try to be librettists and composers at the same time. The important part of every opera is a libretto and music that follows the story introduced in the libretto.  Apart from learning the features of an opera, students will become familiar with some of the world’s most famous opera authors and opera masterpieces. They will also be introduced with one of the most famous Croatian composers, Vatroslav Lisinski, and the first Croatian opera Love and Malice
