Opera – Watch, Listen, Discuss
September 12, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00pm on Wednesday, repeating until October 31, 2018
AT LIFELONG (8 sessions, $40)
Description: Back by popular demand! Opera’s tragedies, comedies, and romantic dramas often hark back to earlier times but grab our emotions today as powerfully as ever. Find out why! We’ll spend about two thirds of each class watching DVDs, a third discussing related musical material. Beginners and seasoned aficionados welcome. (No repeat operas from previous classes. 20 student limit).
