San Francisco Opera Opera Aficionado: Interactive Lecture Series: Rage, Revenge, and the Possibility of Redemption

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.

Rage, Revenge, and the Possibility of Redemption
Sunday, July 5, 2020 at 1PM

Do your favorite operas seem driven by the desire to dominate? Composers often use violence as a foil for the more attractive qualities of clemency and redemption. Join us to explore how “rage arias” show us hidden histories of familiar characters such as Handel’s Semele, Mozart’s Queen of the Night, Verdi’s Rigoletto, and John Adams Madame Mao.
