Saturday Morning Cartoons: Mickey's Grand Opera

Saturday, May 12, 2012

This Saturday’s cartoon does double duty: Richard Wagner’s Prelude to Act III of Lohengrin opens the 1936 Disney cartoon called "Mickey’s Grand Opera."  Later in the cartoon, Clara Cluck, Donald Duck, Pluto and a frog perform the quartet, "Bella Figlia Dell’Amore," from Verdi’s Rigoletto.
