From bel canto brilliance to the earthiest chest tones, the mezzo-soprano has long been the unsung hero of the opera stage. Although they are typically assigned to the secondary role in an opera, make no mistake: These divas steal the scene whenever they are on stage. Join Metropolitan Opera Radio commentator Ira Siff as he follows the exciting history and performances of some of opera’s most thrilling mezzo-sopranos, past and present.

This course has three sessions. To purchase all sessions of Magical Mezzos, please click here.
