PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

This course offers the participant an overview of the lyric opera development in Europe and particularly in Italy. Lessons will focus on the most important Italian Authors and their production from the XVII to the XX century. The academic approach will be multidisciplinary due to the importance of the political, social, intellectual, and economical conditions of the different eras taken in exam. Some operas will be projected in full or in part with an introduction to the period and to the libretto so that the attendees will have the necessary cultural and historical background to follow them.  Discussions in class will follow the projections.
