Opera Live and in High Definition


Course description

Go beyond Pacific Opera Victoria’s (POV) season and explore three of the Metropolitan Opera’s 2018-19 high definition broadcasts. This course includes the same three lectures as Saturday Mornings at the Opera plus three operatic masterpieces offered in high definition at Cineplex theatres in Victoria. September opens with Verdi’s grand spectacle Aida, set in ancient Egypt. October brings us POV’s production of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, named for the heroine who recuses her husband from a Spanish political prison. We then head to mountains of California where a bandit is redeemed by love in Puccini’s The Girl of the Golden West. High definition jealousy fuels a poisonous revenge in Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur, while Dumas’s Lady with the Camellias is immortalized as Verdi’s La Traviata in POV’s February production. Mistaken identities, disguises and a lot of glorious Hungarian melodies captivate us in POV’s final production, Kálmán’s beloved operetta, The Countess of Maritza. Beginners and opera aficionados are equally encouraged to attend this entertaining and informative course.
