Opera University: Bel Canto Crash Course
May 6th, 2019
6:30pm – 7:30pm
The Opera Center
Join us for a new series of “Opera University” discussions at the Opera Center! Director of Education Cody Martin leads a series of informative, engaging, and interactive sessions, aimed to help you learn more about opera and how it all comes together.
In this final session for 2019, we’ll learn everything you could ever want to know about the “bel canto” tradition. Donizetti, Rossini, and Bellini were operatic giants who evolved a new style of opera, focused completely on beautiful singing and all of the magical things the human voice is capable of. We’ll take a journey through these three composers’ careers and outputs, with lots of listening and video examples along the way.
As always, Opera University events are FREE.
