Presented by Ira Siff

The Met’s 2018–19 season features some of opera’s most notorious villains and the unfortunate characters who suffer at their hands. Willful victimization is a consistent theme in operatic repertoire and provides some of the art form’s most iconic moments. Audiences have long been enthralled by the lustful Scarpia’s deadly pursuit of Tosca, Dalila’s seductive undoing of Samson, and Turandot’s callous torture of Liù. In this three-part course, Metropolitan Opera Radio commentator Ira Siff leads us on a musical journey through the hearts, minds, and music of the doers of dastardly operatic deeds.

This course has three sessions. To purchase all sessions of Opera's Villains & Victims, please click here.

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.
