Legendary Singers /Classic Operas
Giuseppe Albanese
Recipient of the LLS 2000 Excellence in Teaching Award

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: This lecture series presents complete operas sung by legendary artists who are, unfortunately, slowly fading from our memories. This lecture series will provide the audience with an opportunity to, once more, relive their glory. Although, definitely not in high definition, this vintage footage (in black and white and color) contains remarkably vibrant performances. From one of opera's "Golden" eras the scheduled artists include American sopranos Beverly Sills and Anna Moffo and Italian tenors, Mario Del Monaco and Franco Corelli. Maestro Albanese will provide interesting facts and commentary on both the performers and the operas. Note: all operas are sung in the original language with English surtitles.
