Opera Live and in High Definition

COURSE

Course description

Go beyond Pacific Opera Victoria’s season and explore four of the Metropolitan Opera’s 2019-20 high definition theatre broadcasts. This course includes lectures on two productions from Pacific Opera Victoria plus four operatic masterpieces presented in Cineplex theatres. September and October are devoted to two Puccini masterpieces, Turandot and Il Trittico, a trilogy of one-act operas, in turn bleak, heart wrenching, and comedic. We then head into the Egyptian desert for Philip Glass’s Akhnaten, the story of a Pharaoh daring to create a new religion. The New Year highlights a star-studded cast in Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, followed by POV’s production of Jonathan Dove’s Flight, a modern story, both humorous and profound, of a refugee stranded in an airport. Finally, dueling queens vie for the affections of the same man in Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda, presented in theatres in May. In each class, you will be presented with the story and background of each opera, and listen to and watch great moments in audio and video examples, all to prepare you to attend and enjoy a live performance. Beginners and opera aficionados are equally encouraged to attend this entertaining and informative course.
