A NIGHT AT THE OPERA— OPERA APPRECIATION
Discover the important and rich history of opera from its beginnings around 1600 to the present. You will learn about the composers, the stories, the music, and the many changes and developments along the way. We will plan an optional field trip at group discount rates to see Opera Philadelphia’s production of Puccini’s La Bohème, plus a couple in the MET opera cinema broadcast series: Mozart’s Don Giovanni and The Magic Flute. There will be special emphasis on preparing participants to understand and appreciate these operas before seeing them, and then time for reflection and discussion afterwards.
