TUESDAY OCT 15, 22, 29 NOV 5 6:30-8PM  
Presented by Naomi Barrettara 
 
The 20th century was a time of incredible change. Two World Wars, shifts in political alliances, the redrawing of national borders, rising and falling economies, rapid changes in technology, and the explosion of informal and cultural exchange began happening at a rate faster than ever before in human history. In this period of 100 years, musical trends developed and evolved rapidly, and opera as an art form went through a dramatic process of evolution and reincarnation as composers reacted to the many changes happening in the world around them. In this four-week CoEd class, lecturer Naomi Barrettara guides audiences through an in depth exploration of operatic masterpieces of the 20th century featured in the 2019-20 season. Each session will examine unique elements of each work’s musical style and compositional construction, as well as information about the composer, historical context, cultural influences, and points of inspiration for the operas under study.
