Comparing and Contrasting Great Interpretations Part 1: Italian Show Stoppers and the Divas that Sing Them

All tickets are sold out!

Saturday, April 01, 2017 11:00 AM

Presented by Naomi Barrettara
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Part of the Comparing and Contrasting Great Interpretations series

The operatic art form is full of musical moments that seem to stop time. But what makes these moments so dramatically and musically affective? How can we begin to describe the unique qualities our favorite singers bring to each role? In this two-part study day, Naomi Barrettara aims to provide an in-depth exploration of these questions for opera enthusiasts and new comers alike.

The Italian repertoire of the romantic era boasts some of the greatest and most beloved show stopping moments in opera history. In the first half we will focus on a selection of arias by Rossini, Bellini, and Puccini, discussing the musical and dramatic challenges of each aria, through interpretations by past and present opera divas.
