« back to classes page
CourseGraphic This bonus study group brings to OLLI previews of the Lyric Opera’s fall 2019 season. The presentations will be given on Wednesdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. The operas and their dates are The Barber of Seville by Gioachino Rossini on September 18, 2019, Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi on October 2, 2019, Dead Man Walking by Jake Haggie on October 30, 2019, and Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Mozart on November 13, 2019. Each presentation will be a live lecture by an experienced former volunteer lecturer of Lyric’s Community Lecture Program previously run by the Lyric Opera Education Department. Many of the lecturers are familiar to OLLI members. Each lecture will cover the music, story, composer, background and other aspects of the opera. The lectures are intended for newcomers to the art form, experienced opera goers, and everyone in between. If you register for OLLI’s fall term you are eligible to register for Lyric Opera Preview Lectures at no extra charge.
