What makes opera grand?

Let's ask Leonard Bernstein. Leonard Bernstein made a few instructional appearances in the 1950s on Omnibus, a television program about science and the arts. Some of the appearances have just been released on DVD.

Good video clip. I like that he picks up on how a single note change can chanage the meaning and emotion in a piece of music. Extremely clever and effective!
