San Francisco Opera [Opera Aficionado: Interactive Lecture Series] Opera Villains

Opera Aficionado is an exciting, new suite of programs designed for patrons who are passionate about opera. Aficionado provides an opportunity to learn more, dive deeper, and get an inside look at the world of opera.

As part of Opera Aficionado, our Interactive Lectures Series gives opera-goers around the world a front-row seat to scholarly talks, allowing attendees to dialogue with fellow opera lovers, experts, and special guests. Each month will be focused on a concept or theme relevant to all of us.

Speaker: Pre-Opera Speaker Robert Hartwell

Halloween means donning exotic costumes while reveling in the ghoulish, and nothing does those things better than opera. Indeed, who needs Freddy Krueger when opera is teeming with murder, madness, mayhem, and making out with severed heads? Please join such miscreants as the Duke of Mantua (Rigoletto), the Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute), and Katerina Izmailova (Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District) in the commission of their heinous deeds, all to the accompaniment of fabulous music.
