Description

Una serata all'opera: Rigoletto

Spend an evening “at the opera” with Michela Ronzani from Milan, the operatic capital of Italy. During this interactive workshop, you will learn vocabulary to discuss and analyze the history and forms of opera in Italian. This is a great way to be exposed to the great music and stories of this typically Italian art form.

We will listen to famous arias, watch and discuss several video clips and read together from librettos to understand and appreciate operatic forms, conventions and language. We will also delve into the story, historical context and themes of Rigoletto (Giuseppe Verdi, 1851), the story of a tragic hunchback jester who meets his demise in the attempt to protect his daughter. Rigoletto will open at the Seattle Opera in August 2019.

After this workshop, you will be a more informed spectator when you attend the opera. Even if you are new to opera, you will have the chance to better understand the opera using what you have learned during the workshop!


An APERITIVO will be served at the beginning of the workshop.

Level: Beginner to advanced
When: Thursday, July 25 f
rom 6:00 - 8:30pm
Where: At percorsoItaliano in Laurelhurst


This workshop will be conducted in Italian with very little English spoken.
