Following on from the fall semester, each session will be a one-hour preview of a Lyric Opera production
during the 2017-18 season. The presenters are experienced former volunteer lecturers in Lyric Opera’s
Community Lecture Program previously run by the Lyric Opera Education Department. Each session will
cover the music, story, composer, background and more about each opera. The operas for the forthcoming
season and campuses for the lectures are: Bellini, I Puritani (CH); Mozart, Così fan tutte (EV); and Gounod,
Faust (CH). The lectures are designed for all, from those who might be interested in attending their first
opera, to the experienced operagoer, and those who just want to learn about this fascinating art form.
Registration is required, but if you register for OLLI’s winter session you are eligible to register for the Lyric
Opera Preview Lectures — at no extra charge — in addition to the number of study groups you already have
in your membership package.
