From Here to Eternity: Immortal Beloved

All tickets are sold out!

Thursday, May 03, 2012 2:00 PM

Presented by Fred Plotkin

Part of the From Here to Eternity: Life, Love, and Immortality in Opera series

Time takes different shapes in opera — whether it stops altogether or extends to eternity. Couples fall in love in the blink of an eye; heroes die with excruciating slowness. In opera, time and emotion are often connected. Fred Plotkin discusses this fascinating relationship in some of the most popular works in the repertoire.
     In Fidelio, his only opera, Beethoven dramatized the love between a husband and a wife under the most difficult of circumstances. Take a closer look at the powerful connections between love and music in this dramatic masterpiece.
