Join me as we explore the rocky, frustrating and fascinating world of hidden operas. Some were lost due to fire, some due to war or political situations, and others for pretty silly reasons. With an emphasis on Vivaldi and Verdi, we'll learn about the musicological work it takes to reconstruct a score, what it's like for singers to learn a "new" work, and how we can (re)introduce masterworks to the canon. Live musical examples with Ivan Docenko, keyboards.
Free and open to the general public ~ Reception to follow. Ample parking available, fully accessible.
