The World of Opera and Operetta
Tutor: Colin Trestrail
Did you ever wonder why no one was sleeping “Nessun Dorma” or if all women are fickle “La donne e mobile” or if there was only one fine day “Un bel di” and what are the qualities of a “Modern Major-General”? This class will explore the plots, songs, composers and singers of some of the world’s best-loved operas and operettas. Over two or three classes for each work, we will enjoy a performance and take the opportunity to share our ideas about the themes and the performances. This is intended to be a real shared exploration of some of the best entertainment ever written and performed.
