10454 An In Depth Study of Two Operas   NEW!

Class sessions will separately focus upon two stirring operas, The Flying Dutchman, an early German opera of Richard Wagner, 1843, and Porgy and Bess, by George Gershwin, 1935, America’s first opera. We will watch and listen to important features such as the creation of dramatic moments, the style of the music, origin of the story, thoughts and goals of the composers and lyricists, and the various interpretations in a staged performance. The course leader will demonstrate from the piano. No music experience needed.
