Opera University: Exploring Innovation in Opera
Thursday, June 18, 2020
Virtual Event via ZOOM
Opera is as vibrant and alive today as it has ever been, with new pieces being composed and premiered each year. In this FREE, virtual Opera University session, we’ll discuss some of the new ways opera has been transformed and reinvented over the past decade. Learn how composers and librettists are writing for the audience of today, while also telling stories that haven’t been showcased on opera stages before. We’ll also talk about new musical styles, new technologies, and new ways of looking at works in the standard repertoire.
