10450 Monsters and Monstrosity in Opera - OLLI Scholar - New   NEW!

This course explores the idea of monstrosity in opera from mythological creatures as metaphors to the human tragedy of madmen and madwomen. We’ll look at monsters in operas from Monteverdi’s Orfeo to Mozart’s The Magic Flute to Adès’s The Tempest. By the end of the class, attendees will better understand plots of famous operas and have a richer appreciation for their dramas. We will cover some basic musical information, but the class requires no musical training.


Schedule: 7 sessions, Wednesdays, Mar. 27-May 8, 2:15-3:45 pm, Sholom East Campus, Community Room, St. Paul
