All tickets are sold out!

Thursday, April 28, 2022 6:00 PM

In this first session, we compare and contrast Verdi’s early operas Nabucco (1842), Ernani (1844) and Macbeth (1847) with Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor and Bellini’s Norma. We will trace Verdi’s origins in the bel canto tradition and see how and when he departs from that tradition, forging his own, distinctive musical style.

This course has three sessions plus a virtual lessor. To purchase all sessions of Verdi the Innovator, please click here.
