All tickets are sold out!

Wednesday, March 16, 2022 2:00 PM

International literature became the source material introduced by Verdi in his Middle and Late Period opera libretti. The ingénues Gilda in Rigoletto and Nanetta in Falstaff offer Verdian vocal sumptuousness, appropriate to young girls in love, but the French style of Victor Hugo and the English style of Shakespeare have Verdi painting Gilda and Nanetta with differing colors and strokes.

This course has four sessions. To purchase all sessions of The Evolution of the Ingénue, please click here.
