O is for...(Baby/Kids/ABCs)


"Barcarolle" from "Tales Of Hoffmann," the one grand opera of Jacques OFFENBACH(1819-1880). Jewish/German born, OFFENBACH made most of his career writing light operas (operettas) in France. The "Barcarolle" (Boat Song, derived from the Italian word "barca") is sung in the opera's 3rd act and describes a watery Venetian night as the ideal setting for love. This and numerous other musical eCards (FredGrams) are designed expressly for young parents (and grandparents) to teach their children the alphabet and, in addition, acquaint them with classic music and great composers.
