BUILDING ON THE success and artistic acclaim achieved with the release of Mickey Mouse & Company in THE BAND CONCERT, Disney took the next logical step. Taking the Band inside a Concert Hall, adding the visuals of the Opera and bringing new, rising star Donald Duck further into the Spotlight, Walt moved the animation envelope just a little closer to his realization of his true dream of doing a Full Length, Feature Animation Picture.

AS IS SO often the case, a cartoon will follow the inter-related actions of two or three characters. In this manner, a story can freely and naturally develop the gags that will both drive the story and please the funny-bone.

IN THE CASE of this picture, we contrast Mickey's earnest attention with both Pluto's animal curiosity and Donald Duck's inaudible and confusing singing in the lead male role on stage.

AS FAR AS the participation by familiar Disney character, there is a quick drop-off in numbers. In the Orchestra Pit we have only Goofy and Clarabelle Cow. The rest of the various sections are populated with some cookie-cutter dog characters. Then there is Donald and the Hen from THE WISE LITTLE HEN; which was Donald's first picture.

THAT WAS ONLY two years earlier; proving how rapidly the Duck's star was rising.
