With live opera performances still on pause, that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to listen to and enjoy opera. In this online course, we will study a selection of opera favourites including Handel’s Giulio Cesare, Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Verdi’s A Masked Ball, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, Wagner’s Die Walküre, and John Corigliano’s The Ghosts of Versailles. From the comfort of home, you'll learn the background of each opera, view different productions from the world’s major opera houses, and listen to great singers bring opera to life. So dress up or down, and get ready to enjoy a night in at the opera.
