There is something for everybody in opera, but it can be daunting to figure out where to start. In this series, lecturer Naomi Barrettara kicks off the 2019–20 season of Opera Boot Camps with an introduction to opera history, musical terms, and voice types designed to be friendly for both newcomers and veteran operagoers.

From the very beginning of opera as an art form, love stories have inspired someof the most beautiful, heartbreaking, and beloved music—as well as centuries of impassioned singing. In our winter Opera Boot Camp, lecturer Naomi Barrettara explores how generations of composers have expressed the complexities of love, rejection, and redemption in their greatest operatic masterpieces.  
 
 
SATURDAY APR 18 & 25 10:30AM-12PM & 1-2:30PM

Conductors are vitally important in the opera house, leading and directing the ensemble of musical forces that comes together during a performance. In the last Opera Boot Camp of the 2019–20 season, lecturer Naomi Barrettara explores the role of the conductor in opera, discussing the history, mechanics, and musical elements of conducting, as well as the extraordinary careers of some legendary conductors.
