Part 2: Love Triangles and Forbidden Passion

All tickets are sold out!

Saturday, January 25, 2020 1:00 PM

Love triangles in opera often lead to tense confrontations, arias of intense longing, emotionally complex ensembles, and duets born out of forbidden passion. The second lecture of this series explores how dramatic tensions are expressed through music and how the orchestra often conveys the hidden and symbolic drama onstage. Operas to be discussed include, but are not limited to, Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades, Handel’s Agrippina, Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda, Massenet’s Werther, and Janác?ek’s Kát’a Kabanová.

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

This session will be held in the Opera Learning Center, located on the 6th Floor of the Samuel B. and David Rose Building at Lincoln Center, 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. For questions, please call the LCE Ticket Line at 212-769-7028, Monday-Friday 10am-4pm.
