'Opera 101' is back

-A A +A

Several years ago, the Santa Fe Opera Guild launched a program they called Opera 101. It was designed and planned for the opera novice.
The course was so successful a second year followed. After a hiatus, Opera 101 is back.
Opera 101 will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 22 at the Opera’s Stieren Hall. Covering the history of this 400-year-old art form in one four hour session is a challenging undertaking. The goal is to have attendees leave with an appreciation and an enthusiasm for the variety that opera offers.
The course is in two parts. Part I, with the help of recordings and video examples, will focus on the musical experience, the different styles of opera with examples of the plot, the music and the singers. Part II, with hands-on demonstrations, will concentrate on “the show” what makes opera come alive, sets, costumes, props, lights and much more.
Kathleen Clawson will lead the session, and will be joined by members of the Opera production team. Clawson is a singer, teacher and director. She is on the faculty of the Department of Theater and Dance at the University of New Mexico.
Cost for the morning session is $20 including refreshments. Reservations and payment may be made at opera101santafe.com. For more information call 629-1410, ext. 21.
