Opera League of Los Angeles: Seminar on Puccini’s Early Works (Puccini100 celebration)

May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT

Opera League of LA Puccini Seminar

I’m delighted to lead this 4-part seminar series, a deep dive journey into the world of this consummate Italian opera composer as the music world honors the 100th anniversary of his death. Join us for a lively voyage through Puccini’s life, his era, and the timeless melodies that continue to resonate with audiences worldwide.

In this “opening act” presentation, I will delve into the complicated reception history of the composer and his work, look at the musical world into which he was born, and explore his first operas—Le villi, Edgar, and Manon Lescaut—which trace the initial formation of Puccini’s compositional “voice.”

Membership is required for registration.

“The Opera League of Los Angeles produces an array of educational programs including seminars, gatherings, musicales, master classes, and much more, all with the common aim of expanding the appreciation of opera by bringing people together to celebrate this timeless art form.” For information about Opera League activities, membership, and this event, check out their web site, linked above!
