Approximate running time: 120 minutes.
A six-class course offered by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute of SF State University. The class will go into some detail about the operas being presented by the San Francisco Opera this season. There will be background information, historical context, plot discussion, as well some more general investigation into current trends in production, vocal techniques and the nuts and bolts of modern opera companies. The goal of the course is to expand general knowledge about opera, and in particular to prepare for the specific productions being mounted by SFO. The class will concentrate on the more standard repertoire, but there will be occasional forays into less well-known pieces.
