Opera Prelude Spring 2013 Lecture Season

Opera is for everyone whether you are new to opera or a seasoned aficionado! You do not need to be an expert to enjoy our performance based lectures. Of course, the more you know, the more there is to enjoy! With that in mind we aim to make each class informative, interactive and entertaining, offering singer’s insights illustrated with live performance and well known recordings. These lectures form the bridge across the footlights, bringing you nearer to opera singers and their diverse, enriching art form; increasing your knowledge and enjoyment of opera.

No qualifications are necessary to attend. The audience is not required to sing!

(All proceeds from ticket sales and donations are used for the benefit of our young singers. Opera Prelude is committed to helping support and nurture young singers through the development of their career to help them achieve their potential.)
