All tickets are sold out!

Saturday, February 01, 2020 1:00 PM

While the operatic canon is rife with tragic endings, there are plenty of optimistic moments in which love is tested and triumphs, lovers are passionately reunited, and love proves to be a source of redemption for the characters. To end our exploration of love in opera, this session examines the musical construction of dramatic high points, as well as the expressive potential of opera as a multimedia art form in communicating the intensity of lust and the transformative power of love. Operas to be discussed include, but are not limited to, Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice, Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro and Così fan tutte, Verdi’s La Traviata, and Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer.

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