I have 6 at the time of listing this...Madama Butterfly, Aida, Tosa, Rigoletto, I Pagliacci, and the Barber of Seville. **Stand is NOT INCLUDED** A wonderful piece and no blemishes noted (box is aged on the outside..and a bit dirty).

SHIPPING NOTE: Please do not be offended by the shipping costs...I realize shipping is high...but, I need to insure most of my items. In order to have coverage, I use Priority Mail on most items.

I will try my best to offer the lowest possible rate...but, please understand, I do not ship my precious items uninsured!
