Join us for Opera Talk at LBT in the 2018-19 season.

Carmen (1/23/19) – Bizet’s iconic tale of the irresistible woman is one of the most popular operas in the repertoire. For Carmen love is like a bird. In time, it may come to you, but if you chase it, it flies away. Bizet never lived long enough to realize or enjoy the extraordinary popularity of his greatest work. Themes of a strong and free woman, attraction, passion, and fate resonate today.

Next Session:

La Clemenza di Tito (2/27/19) – Mozart’s final work, an opera seria, is set in ancient Rome. An intricate web of love, betrayal, hate and forgiveness. It is one of several Mozart operas that explore what it means to be an enlightened leader: the quest for and exercise of power, justice and mercy.
