Enjoying the Beauty of Opera
Millions of people who love opera are not trying to keep it to themselves. It is a large, extravagant, embracing art form. It is also relatively young, having been founded in Florence in 1597, as an attempt by a group of scholars to create a new art form, an opera lirica (lyric work), that incorporated all the ancient arts: singing, instrumental music, poetry, theater, dance, and visual arts. It has evolved through the centuries, and is created in many languages and styles. This course teaches the appreciation of opera by highlighting some of its greatest performers and performances.
Matthew Minzer’s love of opera has made him a student of the music genre. A teacher for forty years, he has attended and researched operas all over the world, and has collected performances. He has met and interviewed operatic performers and has known some of them personally. Frequently lecturing in Palm Beach County, it is the love of the music that led him to share this knowledge and experience with audiences.
