Saturday Mornings at the Opera


Course description

Join your instructor and special musical guests for another season of this popular course. Based on Pacific Opera Victoria’s (POV) three 2018-19 productions, you will learn how to fully appreciate and enjoy each opera. We will learn the story of each opera, watch great singers play their parts on video, listen to special musical guests sing selected arias in class, and discover how each opera came into being from its first inspiration to a finished stage spectacle. This year’s season opens with a production of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, named for the heroine who recuses her husband from a Spanish political prison. In February, Dumas’s Lady with the Camellias is immortalized as Verdi’s tragic courtesan in La Traviata. 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.
