All tickets are sold out!

Thursday, May 12, 2022 6:00 PM

In the final session, we explore the alignment of Verdi’s late period with Wagner’s operas, such as Das Rheingold (1869) and Parsifal (1882). Although Wagner has long been considered the innovator and revolutionary, Verdi displays these qualities in his own powerful and original way in the operas Don Carlo (1867), Otello (1887) and Falstaff (1893). Verdi’s use of the orchestra, so evident in these late works, will sum up the impressive achievements of these complex and brilliant masterpieces.
