OPERA 103: THE GERMANS

Featuring the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Weber, Wagner, Strauss, and Berg.

I will be doing a follow up to the very popular Opera 101/102 series at Rockport Music.   The Opera Education Series is broken down into two sets of 4-night classes to gain a deeper knowledge of opera throughout the centuries (Opera 102 took place in the fall of 2015).  It will be a part-lecture, part performance with performances by Boston Conservatory graduate students. You can subscribe to the series here or individual classes here

Hope to see you there!
