Verdi the Innovator: Part Two

All tickets are sold out!

Thursday, May 05, 2022 6:00 PM

In the second session we will explore Verdi’s middle period and some of his best-loved operas: Rigoletto (1851), La Traviata (1853) and Simon Boccanegra (1857). Examining them in the context of operas composed at a similar time, such as Berlioz’ Les Troyens (1858) and Gounod’s Faust (1859), we will see how Verdi consolidated his Italianate vocal writing in contrast to his French contemporaries.

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