From Mozart to contemporary works, Zito takes a sometimes-intimidating art form and makes it accessible…and fun!
This class tracks the history of opera with easy-to-decipher lectures and examples. From 1600 to present day, Zito shares major works, provides suggested listening lists, and leads Q&A periods. In addition to sharing broad information, Zito also touches on differences between national schools and introduces social, economic and political influences.
Parts 1 & 2: Thursday & Friday March 11 & 12, from 10-11:30am EST
Parts 3 & 4: Thursday & Friday March 18 & 19, from 10-11:30am EST
