WEDNESDAY JAN 15, 22, 29 FEB 5 11AM–12:30PM  
Presented by Matthew Timmermans 
 
The Met’s 2019–20 season features works by composers who revered Richard Wagner, reviled him, and those who simply couldn’t make up their minds. In this four-part course, lecturer Matthew Timmermans explores how various composers came to terms with Wagner’s revolutionary musical ideas and how their reactions are reflected in vocal style, orchestration, and the singers who’ve performed their operas.  
 
FULL COURSE REGISTRATION: $100 Public | $85 Guild members and students 
INDIVIDUAL SESSION REGISTRATION: $28 Public | $25 Guild members and students 
 
WEDNESDAY APR 22, 29 MAY 6 11AM–12:30PM  
Presented by Ira Siff 
 
From bel canto brilliance to the earthiest chest tones, the mezzo-soprano has long been the unsung hero of the opera stage. Although they are often assigned the secondary role in an opera, make no mistake: These divas steal the scene whenever they are on stage. Join Metropolitan Opera Radio commentator Ira Siff as he follows the exciting history and performances of some of opera’s most thrilling mezzo-sopranos, past and present.
