Opera University: Mozart’s Magic
April 29th, 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 session, we’ll talk about how W.A. Mozart transformed opera into something completely different from his predecessors. With new accompanied recitative and ensemble numbers, Mozart’s operas amplified drama and shifted the course of opera development for centuries to come. Baritone Corey McKern will also join us for this event to sing an aria from Le nozze di Figaro as an example of Mozart’s developing style.
As always, Opera University events are FREE.
