WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6 | 12:00 P.M. EST. Italian Opera Series: Learn About... La Traviata, with special guest, Richard Bernstein of the Metropolitan Opera. Italian Opera Series Classes: January 6: La Traviata by Verdi. January 13: La Bohème by Puccini. REGISTER

The opera La Traviata is part of Giuseppe Verdi's Popular Trilogy along with Rigoletto and Il Trovatore and represents an important advance in opera composition. Literally meaning "The One Who Went Astray", it revolves around the story of the courtesan Violetta and is based on the popular novella The Lady of the Camelias, written by Alexandre Dumas, Jr., son of the famed author of the Three Musketeers.

Its music features some of the most beautiful tunes in opera - Libiamo and Sempre Libera, to name a few, and has permeated modern culture, appearing in countless TV commercials and even serving as the inspiration for such film classics as Pretty Woman and Moulin Rouge. This week's class will feature special guest Richard Bernstein, renowned operatic bass in his 25th season with the Metropolitan Opera, as one of the teachers. Join us to learn about this timeless classic.

Instructors Ashley Galvani Bell (Carnegie Hall, New York City Opera, Sarasota Opera) and Anton Armendariz Diaz (Rioja Forum, Principal de Castellón, Festival de Cine de Barcelona) come from a background of operatic performance and directing, and their passion is likely to ignite yours.
Registration fee: $25 per class
