Saturday, January 25, 2020 10:30 AM

Falling in love often happens fast and furiously in opera as characters move from polite introductions to passionate declarations of love in a matter of minutes. This lecture focuses on how different composers depict immediate infatuation between characters and the escalation of emotion. This session will also explore the expressive and theatrical nuances of some famous “love at first sight” scenes. Operas to be discussed include, but are not limited, to Puccini’s La Bohème, Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer, Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, and Mozart’s The Magic Flute.

This course has four sessions. To purchase all sessions of Opera Boot Camp: For the Love of Opera, please click here.
