OPERA 101 - the fundamentals of Italian opera

This course is designed for those who would like

to understand the basic principles of Italian opera.

We will begin by explaining the fundamental framework

for this multi-disciplinary art form

and explore the crucial relationship between "roles" and "fachs".

We will then discover how the quest for "bel canto"

(virtuoso, display singing) evolved in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Our two final sessions will focus on why Giuseppe Verdi

is considered to be the "heart of Italian opera"

and then why there was such a strong reaction after him

by the composers of the "Verismo" school, led by Giacomo Puccini.
