The Magic of the Metropolitan Opera: "The Hours"   

Pulitzer-prize winning composer, Kevin Puts, new adaptation of the 1998 novel by Michael Cunningham and an award-winning 2002 film, chronicles a day in the life of three women from three different eras with interwoven stories connected to Virginia Woolf’s novel “Mrs. Dalloway.” Clarissa is in New York City in 1999. Virginia is in Richmond, England, in 1923. Laura is in Los Angeles in 1949. We will be listening to and discussing the history of creation of this opera, its structure, different musical elements which are characteristic of this opera, and other information will be added to define additional contributions to the genre.
