Introduction to the Femme Fatale across Opera History
Presented by Naomi Barrettara and Stephanie Pierson

What does the term “femme fatale” mean? From where does the archetype originate, and how has it changed over time? What are some of the most important cultural trends that have influenced the femme fatale persona in major operas of the season? This first session will explore all of these questions as a launching point for our discussion of femmes fatales across the operatic repertoire.

This course has four sessions. To purchase all sessions of Opera Boot Camp: Femmes Fatales, please click here.
