Opera Strip! The new way to interpret operas

Opera, eh? That stunning art form that consists of heart-achingly beautiful music, acting, and choreography. But let's be honest, most of us don't really know what's going on half the time. Right? Right?

Well, thankfully Sinfini music (opens in new tab) has created Opera Strip and this week, illustrator and comic artist William Elliott (opens in new tab) has created the first part of Wagner's epic, four-part Ring cycle in comic strip form.

Once you've got this first part of the story down, the website also provides the musical accompaniment to the opera. You can also read the Wagner biography (opens in new tab) which includes the Sinfini Music selection of key works and Sinfini Recommended Recordings.

We love this fresh take on a traditional art. You can read the full comic strip here (opens in new tab).
