This bonus study group brings to OLLI previews of the Lyric Opera’s 2018-2019 season. The one and only presentation during the winter session noon hour in Evanston will be on Wednesday, February 6. The opera is Verdi’s beloved masterpiece La Traviata. The lecturer is an experienced former volunteer of Lyric’s Community Lecture Program previously run by the Lyric Opera Education Department. The lecture will cover the music, story, composer, background and other aspects of the opera. It is intended for newcomers to the art form, highly experienced opera goers, and everyone in between. Registration is required, but if you register for OLLI’s winter session you are eligible to register for Lyric Opera Preview Lectures at no extra charge. If you wish you may register separately for the preview of Electra being held at the Chicago campus on January 23.
