#4253 Exploring Opera: Sheer Madness

ID : 201   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic “It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to go insane” (Philip K. Dick). Take a break from our crazy reality of today by journeying with James Sokol through a wide range of repertoire to experience how the theme of madness is portrayed through compelling characters, lush music and soaring voices. Listen and watch as madness begins as a vehicle to show off the voice in extraordinary ways (in the Bel Canto period) and develops across a century (during the Romantic period) to become a compelling, if frightening, character trait (in Modern opera). Video performance clips bring the excitement and beauty of opera into the discussion.  This is a great class for both the opera newcomer and the long-time fan.
