Presented by Naomi Barrettara
Duration: 90 Minutes
Part of the Opera Boot Camp: Introduction to the Operatic Voice Types series

Words like spinto, fach, coloratura, and tessitura are all regularly used to describe the types of voices we hear in the opera repertoire, but what do these words mean in relation to singing? What are operatic voice types, and what is the difference between them? In this four-part course, resident Opera Boot Camp instructor Naomi Barrettara will address these questions and more as she guides the audience through an exploration of operatic voice types, highlighting singers of the past and present and discussing how their voices fit into (or, in some cases, defy) established vocal categorizations.

This session will be held in the Opera Learning Center, located on the 6th Floor of the Samuel B. and David Rose Building at Lincoln Center, 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. For questions, please call the LCE Ticket Line at 212-769-7028, Monday-Friday 10am-4pm.
