Approximate running time: 90 minutes.

Expand your horizons! Presented by a variety of exciting and renowned experts -- scholars, librettists, directors, critics and more -- these sessions are illustrated both musically and visually and dig into the background and meaning of each opera -- its creation, the times which formed it, its performance details and even its absurdities. Designed to stimulate both beginners and long-term opera addicts, Opera Previews also enable audiences to question and discuss the ideas presented. Sponsored by San Francisco Opera Guild’s chapters (East Bay, Marin, Peninsula, and San Francisco) and by the San Jose Opera Guild.
