HyFlex The Richness of Rossini   

**This class will be taught in-person**

The famous composer of the sparkling operatic comedy The Barber of Seville, Gioaccino Rossini, was a  fascinating figure in the history of music who created his very own musical style unmatched for its  effervescent wit, dazzling virtuosity, and brilliant flair. In this course we will explore the early, lesser-known  comedies of this teenage prodigy, beloved Italian comic works like The Italian Girl in Algiers and Cinderella, and imposing serious operas like Tancredi and Semiramide, culminating with his final masterpiece, the  French grand opera William Tell. We will exult in glorious singing and compelling storytelling as we explore  the richness of Rossini.
