Ratings and Reviews
Nice Idea for Introductory
Art work and interaction very appealing and enjoyable. Three out of four of the operas were nice to listen to as you pop away at the various beautifully coloured pictures. However; as per usual with opera, if you do not have the correct voice to go with the style of performance then you are in for a huge migraine effect and the last story in the set is just unbearable, unlistenable which spoils this and you are left with only tapping away at your quiet screen which defeats the object of this app. VERY SHORT it relies on ALL of the sets to be pleasing to not only the
eye but to what the app is supposed to be all about and this is the Opera Music and singing. Re do the last set and you are almost on to a winner. I am not an opera buff but enjoy listening to the occasional screech if I am in social situation where I have no choice, so scoring 3 out of 4 from me is pretty dam good :) As for the children enjoying; Yes the interactive pictures are excellent childish fun. As for the opera itself; will totally depend on the child.
Absolutely gorgeous app
My two-year-old daughter is a huge fan of this app, and returns to it time and time again. Unsurprising, given the wonderful selection of music and absolutely beautiful illustrations/animations.
