This bonus group brings to OLLI previews of the Lyric Opera's fall 2020 season even though it is recognized that the fall season will not go forward at least in live in-person productions. The operas are the Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana and Leoncavallo's Pagliacci (9/9), Benjamin and Crimp's Lessons in Love and Violence (9/23), Puccini's Tosca (10/28), and Verdi's Attila (11/11). Each presentation will be by an experienced, former, volunteer lecturer of Lyric's Community Lecture Program (previously run by the Lyric Opera Education Department) many of whom are familiar to OLLI members. The lecture will cover the music, story, composer, background and other aspects of the opera. It is intended for newcomers to the art form, experienced opera goers, and everyone in between. If you register for OLLI's fall semester, you are eligible to register for A Day at the Opera at no extra charge.
