Exploring Modern Masterworks Study Day

Saturday, February 16, 2019 - 11:00am (Phoenix)

Do you struggle to find the beauty in 21st-century opera? Or perhaps you want to find out how we went from Puccini’s romanticism to Philip Glass’s atonalism in less than 50 years? Arizona Opera invites you to an informative exploration filled with guided listening and discussion of opera in the past century led by Metropolitan Opera Guild lecturer, Naomi Barrettara. 
The exploration comes in preparation for this season’s Marlu Allen and Scott Stallard Modern Masterwork performances of the Pulitzer Prize-winning opera, Silent Night.
