Presented by Naomi Barrettara and Elspeth Davis
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

From Monteverdi to Muhly, opera has been an important form of cultural expression and an agent of change for centuries. Thomas Adès The Exterminating Angel is one of the most dramatically thrilling operas to premier in the last two decades; however, it's not the only one. Focusing on works written post-2000, Guild lecturers Naomi Barrettara and Elspeth Davis will discuss musical styles and theatrical trends that are shaping opera today.

Operea; The Next Generation
How do composers choose subject matter for new works? How do librettists and composers work together? What inspires musical and compositional choices? In the second half of our day, special guests Missy Mazzoli, Paola Prestini, and Kevin Puts will join Naomi and Elspeth to discuss what it takes to create and produce an opera in today's world.

Please note that Student pricing is available to full-time students with valid identification.

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.
