Opera at Florham presents the lecture, Operatic Goodbyes
October 16 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pmfree
At Opera at Florham’s 2nd installment of its Opera lecture series, music educator Lou Barrella presents “Addio” Operatic Goodbyes. Saying “goodbye” brings up a diversity of emotions. Leaving one’s home, the death of a loved one, or a romantic breakup is usually accompanied with strong feelings. Opera composers are sensitive to these moments and have created beautiful melodies to express these partings. This presentation explores many of these farewells, including Mimi’s very emotional and much-loved goodbye to Rodolfo from La Bohème.
Free. Walk-ins welcome. Masks required.
The 3rd lecture in the series is “Dramatic Scenes in Film and Opera” Nov 13 at 10:30am at Madison NJ Library (note different location). Registration requested http://engagedpatrons.org/EventsExtended.cfm?SiteID=1689&EventID=440202&PK=
