Opera 101 Lecture Series

Opera 101 Lecture Series
Winter 2017


Presented by Tedrin Blair Lindsay, Ph.D.

This semester, the Opera Lecture Series will explore the works of great opera composers a little outside the mainstream. In March, we will investigate Germanic and Slavic composers,  and in April, we will turn to lesser-known composers from Italy and France  and finally from the United States, just in time to introduce the UK Opera Theatre graduate chamber opera production (April 27th and 28th), a double bill of charming one-acts by Thomas Pasatieri.

March 4:  Berg and Korngold

March 11:  Janáček and Weill

April 1:  Cilea, Giordano, Catalani, and Leoni

April 15:  Chabrier, Ravel, and Poulenc

April 22:  Barber, Menotti and Pasatieri

All classes will meet from 10:00 until noon in the Gail Robinson Music Library at the Schmidt Vocal Arts Center on UK’s campus on the corner of Rose Street and Rose Lane. Parking is available directly behind the building. $20 per class, $5 for students.  See you there!
