These most beloved arias have been adapted by Daniel Dorff for flute and clarinet, along with the translations and scene descriptions.

The eight arias are: O Mio Babbino Caro from Gianni Schicchi; Musetta's Waltz from La Boheme; Un Bel Di, Butterfly's Entrance and Flower Duet from Madama Butterfly; Donna Non Vidi Mai from Manon Lescaut, Vissi d'Arte from Tosca and Ave Maria from Suor Angelica.
