Comedy is a challenge. It is much more difficult to pull off successfully than tragedy – both for a composer and for a performer.

It covers a wide-ranging spectrum … from subtle irony or droll parody to full-scale “laugh out loud” guffaws.

Individual tastes – what they think is funny - vary considerably … and this is magnified on macro-social and national scales.

We will explore the contrasting styles of Italian, French, Viennese, English and Russian conceptions of comic and light operas.

And yes, it will be FUN!!!
