Speaker: Laura Prichard
The arrival of Spanish colonists in what they thought was a “new world” forever changed human civilization and its course in history. One of our favorite and most regular speakers at San Francisco Opera, Laura Prichard, will travel with us back in time to the Baroque Era in Latin America, where unique forms of classical music and opera flourished. From boychoirs singing a cappella, to the lost operatic works of Mexican composers like Manuel de Zumaya, this lecture will have you yelling Bravo! for all things Mexican Baroque.
