Mickey is preparing to conduct an opera when he chases Pluto away. Pluto crashes into a magician's props backstage and spars with the hat, its rabbits, and its doves. The opera begins: Clarabelle plays flute, Clara and Donald are the leads in Romeo and Juliet. Pluto follows the magic hat onstage, to Mickey's growing annoyance. The hat falls into a tuba, and soon the animals are filling the stage. Written by

Eesh, if I were making an Opera I would NOT cast a hen as the fat lady. Sorry. She's just awful, that noise...ugh! I think Disney should have realized her singing would have put people off! The 1 minute shot of her just singing was too much to bear.
As usual for a Disney cartoon, calamity is not far behind. Backstage Pluto is being tormented by rabbits in a top hat, conductor Mickey is desperately trying to keep the Opera from falling apart and Donald has trouble with his acting skills and prodding stuff with his sword prop.
The audience gets a fair chuckle as everything goes badly. And the cartoon ends on an abrupt note, as many Disney toons do. Mildly funny.
