The Agony of Ectasy in the Italian Repertory Part I
Recipient of the LLS 2000 Excellence in Teaching Award
EVENT DESCRIPTION: The word "passion" is derived from a Greek word indicating pain and, sometimes, when we become deeply involved with something or someone it is, indeed, painful. Passion is also a staple in the world of opera, especially in the Italian Bel Canto repertoire. Maestro Giuseppe Albanese presents a series of these extremely emotional moments in this lecture which features 10 powerful segments. These musical selections illustrate both deep and powerful feelings associated with both joy and sadness. Mr. Albanese will provide both settings and commentary throughout the program.
BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: Giuseppe Albanese attended the University of Vermont and received his degree in history in 1966. In 1989, after five years of intensive study, he developed a dynamic education program entitled the Joy of Opera. For the past 20 years, he has lectured extensively on many operatic subjects and produced numerous video documentaries.
