Storyline

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 a Romeo and Juliet style opera, "Bella Figlia Dell'Amore" from Verdi's Rigoletto. 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 Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Alternate Versions

The 1984 VHS release of this short not only omits the original title cards (both opening and closing), but also replaces them with the ones from Symphony Hour. This results in a rather abrupt cut in the opening and no title card whatsoever. See more »

A somewhat boring opera.
5 November 2015 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

In this cartoon short, Mickey Mouse is conducting an opera when he chases Pluto away, only to have him tangle with his runaway magician hat. Meanwhile, Clara Cluck sings a pretty mundane opera number with her somewhat annoying voice, as Clarabelle Cow plays the flute and Donald Duck serves as Clara's male lead. It results in some funny moments as Donald and Clara's awkward chemistry are depicted, all the while Pluto spars with the magician hat and Mickey frantically tries to keep the entire opera under control. However, what results is a pretty chaotic mess. The actual humor is kept at a minimum, so, as a result, I've seen funnier cartoons than this from Disney.

Grade C+
