Listening to Opera

With Love Market & Cafe - Community Room
1969 S. Vermont Ave
Los Angeles US

This is a class for anybody who is curious about opera, whether you’re completely new to it or have already started exploring this amazing musical form. I'll talk about what goes into an opera performance, bring some examples to watch and discuss, show you how to follow along with a libretto. What we'll cover – with many examples to listen to: • A quick tour of opera history and some of the key composers and works – not exhaustive, just a start! • What to look/listen for in opera – great music, amazing singing, characters, drama, emotion and spectacle. • How operas are structured and how that's changed over time • A bit about opera singing - voice types, roles, the chorus • Getting the most out of attending an opera performance – and where to see opera in Los Angeles

Bring one of the following:
A bottle of fish oil capsules
A bottle of white wine or prosecco
A box of Arm & Hammer scoopable cat litter (Multicat, Super Scoop, Double Duty – any will work)
A dog collar and leash (any size - to be donated to the shelter pet assistance program)
An unopened bag of dog food (to be donated to the shelter pet assistance program)

About the teacher, Anne Schwarz

I have been spinning yarn for about 10 years. I got started when I bought an alpaca and wanted to figure out what to do with her fleece. I still have a couple of alpacas and lots of fleece, but I've branched out into spinning all kinds of fiber and find it creative and relaxing.
